Volunteering at EYSD
HOW DO I BECOME A VOLUNTEER?
Thank you for your interest in volunteering your time and services within the Eastern York School District. As part of the district’s ongoing efforts to ensure the safest environment for our students, all volunteers must now complete a “Volunteer Packet” with required documentation.
- Volunteer Application
- Volunteer Disclosure
- PA Criminal History Record Check/Act 34 (dated less than a year ago)
- PA Child Abuse Clearance/Act 151 (dated less than a year ago)
- Act 24 Arrest/Conviction Report & Certification Form
- All athletic and co-curricular volunteers are required to submit a TB test result dated within the past two years.
- In order to remain an “active” volunteer you must volunteer at least one time each school year. Volunteers who are listed as “inactive” will be required to resubmit volunteer documents and updated clearances if they wish to volunteer within the district again.
