Volunteer Manual

All school district volunteers are required to renew clearances every 5 years. See links below to access clearance applications.

Please submit all of your completed clearance forms to the main office of your student's school or to the District Office. Mark them "Attention: Volunteer Clearances Coordinator." 

State Police and Child Abuse forms can be completed online and are FREE for volunteers. The Child Abuse Clearance also offers a paper form.

  • PA Child Abuse Clearance Electronic Form or Child Abuse Clearance Paper Form

  • Federal Criminal Record Check (fingerprinting)
    Please read the attached directions carefully. There is a fee for this clearance and is only necessary if you have not been a Pennsylvania resident for the past 10 years.

  • Proof of a TB (tuberculosis) test must also be completed/submitted at the volunteer's expense.

    SMSD is now offering free TB testing for new employees and volunteers. Please refer to the volunteer manual below for details about how to get one scheduled.

  • The Disclosure Statement Application and Volunteer Information Form (linked below) must be completed annually.
