  2. DO NOT have routine interaction with students.


Examples

  • Individuals who help to plan or conduct classroom celebrations 
  • Parents/guardians attending book fairs or holiday stores
  • Parents/guardians serving as guest readers/presenters in a classroom

Requirements

All prospective Assistive Volunteers must:

  1. Submit to an annual scan of their driver’s license to verify that they are not listed on the National Sex Offender Registry; and
  2. Complete a Disclosure Statement Application for Volunteers as required by the Child Protective Services Law.

The Disclosure Statement form may be completed at the time of the license scan. License scans are conducted in private by designated Mars Area personnel from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the District’s Administration Office (545 Route 228; Mars, PA 16046). The disclosure statement and driver’s license scans for Assistive Volunteers are only valid during the school year in which approval is granted and must be renewed annually
