Mifflinburg Area School District has a policy in place that helps to ensure the safety of every child in our district. In order to volunteer for certain types of events including field trips, working at the book fair and other amazing opportunities, you will need to submit a Volunteer/Visitor Application.
This application will require you to complete background clearances for Child Abuse through the PA State Police and PA Department of Public Welfare. These clearances are currently offered free for volunteers.
Any adult wishing to come in and help must have these clearances and paperwork filled out and submitted to the office, prior to coming in. This includes grandmas, aunts, dads, moms, etc. I have attached behind this letter, the Volunteer/Visitor application as well as the visitor affidavit. You will need to return ALL four parts to have completed the clearance process. Only when you have all four submitted to our office, will you be put onto our list of approved volunteers. The list is below:
- The Volunteer/Visitor Application: This states what building you are wishing to volunteer at and the purpose.
- The Volunteer Affidavit: You may fill this out instead of completing Act 114 FBI fingerprint clearances only IF you have lived in Pennsylvania for the entirety of the last ten years. Please be sure to have a witness sign and date this form!
- Act 34 Clearance: Department of Public Welfare Child Abuse History. This is completed online via the Department of Public Welfare website. This form may take a while to process and send to you. Please be sure to do this well in advance before upcoming events. Please also be sure to send a copy of this.
- Act 151 Clearance: PA State Police Request for Criminal Records Check. Please be sure to print and send in a copy of the certificate.
Please read it carefully to understand what other forms must be submitted with the application. Any questions can be directed to Miss Goss, in our office at 570-966-8320. If you already have submitted it, please let me know so I am able to check to ensure you are on the list. They are valid for our district for only 36 months.
