First-time volunteers or a person who has volunteered within the last school year, must provide a PA criminal Record Check, PA Child Abuse History Clearance and a Federal History Criminal Record. All required clearances must be dated within the past year. If you were approved by the BEA school board as a volunteer last year and you volunteered in one of our schools, it will not be necessary for you to submit new clearances this school year. Clearances are valid for five years.
You can find information about all three required clearances on the BEA website, www.beasd.org, in the "volunteer" section of the "menu." Click on each clearance title for a link to the appropriate website. Please note that it may take a few weeks for you to receive your clearances once you submit your paper or online application. When you receive your clearances, please give a copy of each one to the building secretary or your child'd teacher, who will forward them to the district offices.
