The Altoona Area School District welcomes volunteer participation in our schools and fully understands the impact parent involvement makes on the education of the child. There are many opportunities in our schools to actively participate in the educational program.
In accordance with the Child Protective Services Law and Act 15 of 2015, volunteers are required to obtain background checks (PA State Police and FBI Reports) and child abuse clearances (Child Abuse History Clearance). Clearances are valid for 60 months from the date of issue and must be on file in the school Main Office prior to the volunteer being approved to participate in any activities.
The volunteer requirements and the individual clearances are described in detail within the Altoona Area School District Volunteer Manual. For specific questions, please contact the building principal.
Thank you for your time and dedication to our students.
