Parents who choose to volunteer in ICEC MUST obtain their Pennsylvania State Police, Child Abuse clearance, and FBI clearance. These clearances may be obtained as follows:
FBI Clearance – One only needs to be fingerprinted if you have NOT resided in PA for the past 10 years.
FBI Fingerprinting use code 1KG6ZJ
If you have resided in PA for the past 10 years, then you just have to sign the waiver.
Clearances will not be needed for birthday celebrations or special events BUT if you plan to help out in the classroom, you will need to obtain your clearances. Clearances are good for five years and are needed by all adults working with or around children. Please bring a copy of your clearances to the office so we can have them on file.
When parents volunteer in the classroom or anywhere in the school they may encounter sensitive information about children in our center. We respect all children and families therefore, volunteers must comply with our policies and keep all information they encounter during their assistance confidential.
