VOLUNTEER AT H.W. GOOD

 November 7, 2018
Dear Parents and Guardians,

There have been changes to state policies as outlined in Act 153 that require Pennsylvania school districts to revise their policies on clearances for staff and volunteers.

To comply with Act 153, Yough School District will now require all employees and volunteers to get new clearances every five years.

While we encourage parent participation in our schools, please be aware that to volunteer with Yough School District you must have current clearances – ones that are less than five years old.  Clearances will remain in effect for five years, and at the end of the five years, volunteers must obtain new clearances. Instructions and links are available below.  Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.

Sincerely,
Dr. Amy Larcinese, Principal
