Volunteer Clearances

Volunteers are an integral part of the Dallas School District team, and the district appreciates the student opportunities made possible by your donation of time.

In compliance with state guidelines, the district requires all volunteers submit background clearances and receive Board approval.

If you have been a Pennsylvania resident for the past ten (10) years and have not been convicted of enumerated offenses, you may submit this Affidavit, in lieu of the FBI fingerprinting check.
