Clearances and Mandatory Reporting

Clearances & Mandatory Reporting

Please refer to this page when completing your clearance applications as the three clearances are from different agencies, and the procedures for each differ. Clearances must be sent to the KCSD Human Resources Department.  Please contact personnel@kcsd.k12.pa.us if you have questions

  • All school employees and active substitutes are required by PA School Code to provide new clearances every five years.
  • Employees are responsible for obtaining and providing up-to-date clearances before the expiration of previous clearances.
  • Volunteer clearances are NOT acceptable for the purpose of employment.

*IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE APPLICANT TO HAVE ALL CLEARANCES SENT TO HUMAN RESOURCES.  KCSD DOES NOT GET THEM FROM THE RESPECTIVE AGENCIES.

Please note that the process for the FBI clearance has recently changed. The fingerprint center is operated by a different organization at a different location. The instructions below provide the necessary information.  WHEN YOU GO TO identoGO PLEASE USE THIS CODE: 1KG6XN
