Once school starts, Bache-Martin will need parent volunteers in the school building more so than in previous years. Anyone who plans to volunteer during the school operating hours should apply NOW to get the two security clearances required by the school district.

The district requires ALL volunteers in the schools including field trip chaperones to obtain a criminal history background check and a Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance. [Please note: volunteers working BEFORE school starts do not need security clearance.]

  • As for July 25, 2015, these two clearances are available FREE of charge for volunteering purposes.
  • All clearances are valid for 60 months (5 years).  
  • Clearances obtained for employment purposes are acceptable for volunteer purposes.

Once you have received both clearance reports, bring your  original of the Child Abuse Clearance report and a copy of your PA Criminal History Check report to the Bache-Martin office – where they can make a copy for Bache-Martin’s files.

If you would like to volunteer at Bache-Martin during the school year, especially during the first weeks of school, PLEASE APPLY FOR THESE CLEARANCES NOW so you can be ready to help Bache-Martin in whatever ways are needed.
