Volunteers


  • Volunteers are always needed and welcome at Camp Hill Schools.

    On December 31, 2014 Act 153 took effect, changing the requirements for volunteers.  On June 29, 2015, Act 153 was amended by Act 15. Volunteers are now required to obtain new clearances every 60 months (5 years). The Camp Hill School District does not processes or pay for volunteer clearances.  Volunteers are responsible for obtaining current clearances and submitting hard copies to the district administration office. 

    To be a volunteer you must submit current clearances.  The links below may be used to obtain/renew your clearances.  All clearances submitted to the administration office must be dated within 60 months (5 years) of submission.  Volunteers must obtain updated clearances every 60 months. The date that the volunteer must go by is the expiration of the oldest clearance.

    *Volunteer coaches, chaperones who accompany students on overnight trips, and volunteers spending ten (10) or more hours per week in direct contact with students are required to submit the results of a recent tuberculosis (TB) test to the administration office along with their clearances. The TB test must be completed within 90 days of submission to the district.

    **Please Note**

    With the implementation of our new visitor managment system, School Gate Guardian, all volunteers must  now show a drivers license or a state issued ID when submitting volunteer clearances.


    Clearances required for all volunteers:

    Act 151 (PA Child Abuse Clearance)

    Act 34 (PA State Police Clearance)

    Additionally, a fingerprint based federal criminal history (Act 114- FBI) is required if the volunteer has lived outside of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the last 10 years,
    OR
    Volunteers who have been continuous residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for the past 10 years must affirm in writing that they are not disqualified from service based on a conviction of an offense under §6344, by completing the Camp Hill School District Volunteer Verification Form (link below).
