• logo PGHS PTA Volunteer Clearance Policy


    In order to volunteer at PTSA Concession Stand and at other PTSA functions in the high school, the PTSA is required to obtain clearances that include the following:

    • Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance can be submitted for online through the Child Welfare Information Solution (CWIS) self-service portal, www.compass.state.pa.us/cwis.


    Reminder: Background checks fees for volunteers have been waived (effective since July 25, 2015) and the Pottsgrove district has waived the TB testing.


    Submitting an application online allows individual applicants to receive their results through an automated system that will notify the applicant once their results have been processed. Applicants will be able to view and print their results online.

    For more information about the electronic submission of child abuse clearances or for information on obtaining the Pennsylvania State Police Criminal Record Check or Federal Bureau of Investigation Criminal Background Check,

    Please go to: http://www.dhs.pa.gov/publications/forproviders/childcareforms/index.htm

    Upon completion of all clearances, please email copies to Mrs. Susan Coniglario, PTSA Clearance Policy Chairperson, at PottsgroveHSPTSA@gmail.com  to her attention or please drop it off at the PGHS PTSA Mailbox at Pottsgrove High School Office.

    Volunteers at the concession stand can drop off their copies at the concession stand prior to commencing volunteering work.

     Please NEVER give your original hard copies as you will need them to volunteer at other PTA organizations.

     Thank you for your commitment,

    The Pottsgrove High School PTSA Executive Board
