PA State Clearances

Clearance Requirements

In addition to signing up with CHYSC, all coaches with CHYSC will be required to submit to a background check in accordance with PA law. 

Details for clearances can be read at keepkidssafe.pa.gov. Governor Wolf has instituted a fee waiver for volunteers.  There are three documents that need to be completed

1. Child Abuse History Clearance – https://www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis/public/home 

2. Pennsylvania Criminal Record Check – https://epatch.state.pa.us/Home.jsp 

and either:

Signed Disclosure Statement (10+ yr continuous PA residents) http://keepkidssafe.pa.gov/cs/groups/webcontent/documents/document/c_160267.pdf

OR

If you have not lived in Pennsylvania for the last 10 years, you would need to do an FBI check in lieu of the Signed Disclosure Statement.
