Update on volunteer clearance policy

The state Legislature recently passed a law mandating criminal records checks and child abuse clearances for community members serving as volunteers at public schools. The law was to take effect July 1, 2015, but has been delayed until July 1, 2016, so school officials can clarify to whom the law applies. Penn Manor will not implement a change in policy on volunteer clearances until later in the 2015-2016 school year.
