Important Notice Regarding Volunteer Clearance Requirements
Thank you for your efforts in getting clearances to volunteer at Hillside. As the result of new amendments to the Child Protective Services Law (CPSL) enacted on July 1, 2015, implementation of the requirement for volunteer clearances will not take effect until July 1, 2016. The new amendments include significant changes to the 2014 amendments to the CPSL. Most notably, only volunteers with regular and repeated contact with students and who are responsible for care, supervision, guidance or control of children will need clearances. Additionally, renewal of clearances will now be required every five (5) years rather than every three (3). The District will be communicating further guidance on these new requirements as it becomes available.
We understand that the ongoing and changing state and district mandated changes may cause added confusion for all of us. Please be assured that as soon as we receive any further direction, we will promptly pass it on to you.
Any questions/confusion can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
