Volunteers play a vital role in supporting the staff, students, and programs of our schools in the Upper Perkiomen School District (UPSD). Thank you for your interest in volunteering at UPSD.
You are considered a volunteer if you are coming in to any school building for more than the purposes of a one time presentation under a teacher's supervision or dropping something off in the main office. Volunteer's interact with students and move beyond the main office into the halls and participate in the daily activities of the students.
On October 22, 2014, Act 153 of 2014 was signed into law. This new law changed background check requirements for employees, contractors and volunteers. This law requires action on your part in order to remain or become a volunteer at UPSD. All employees, contractors and volunteers are required to obtain new clearances (child abuse history, state and federal criminal history checks) every 5 years (60 months).
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please be advised the following paperwork will be required before you are able to begin volunteering in the District.
Once the paperwork listed below has been completed please do the following:
Retain copies for your records
Send copies to the UPSD Human Resources Office through one of the following methods:
1. Scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org (we do not need to see original forms as they can be verified online)
2. Mail copies to 2229 E. Buck Road, Pennsburg, PA 18073 Attention: HR
3. Stop in our office at the address above to drop off copies
Once all appropriate paperwork has been received and verified by Human Resources your name will be added to a list of active volunteers. This list is updated and provided to all school's central office staff who can verify that you are eligible to volunteer in any UPSD building.
