Wonderful Moments From Yesterday's Assembly

We were so excited to share our love of great literature with Dr. Weitzel yesterday afternoon. Our staff transformed the gym into the Polar Express, complete with a warm fire, a cozy chair, and pajamas all around. The staff also presented Dr. Weitzel with his own special bell, signifying his continued belief in the importance of education and our district.


Thank you, Dr. Weitzel!!

Reminder: Volunteer Paperwork is Required

All Central Bucks School District Volunteers play a vital role in supporting the staff, students and programs of our schools in the Central Bucks School District. Thank you for your interest in volunteering at CBSD!


Pennsylvania law requires all persons having direct contact with school children obtain background checks and clearances. While the law allows until July 1, 2016 to obtain these documents, Central Bucks School District is asking volunteers to comply with submitting their clearances prior to volunteering during the 2015-2016 school year, as this is in the best interest of the safety and security of our students. Required clearances along with links to the state’s websites are listed below.

Under Pennsylvania law, any person having direct contact with school children is considered a mandatory reporter and is required to report reasonable suspicion of child abuse. As a CBSD volunteer, you are a mandatory reporter and must complete SafeSchools training. See below for additional information.


VOLUNTEER INFORMATION / WEBSITE LINKS / FAQs

Required Clearances/Paperworklinks to the state’s websites are below. Please see the helpful hints next to each link.

1. PA State Police Criminal Background Check - Click the control number to view your results. Click the "Certification Form" link in the center of the page to view, save and print your official certificate.

2. PA Child Abuse History Certification - Click "Create Individual Account". The Keystone Key is a user name you create. Follow the site's step-by-step instructions for creating a password. Be sure to keep a record of your Keystone Key and Password as you will need them to access your results. You will receive an email from the site when your results are available, within 14 days of submission.

3. FBI Fingerprinting (2 Options) - If you have been a Pennsylvania resident less than 10 consecutive years, you must complete the fingerprinting process. Register online on the Cogent site; complete the registration form choosing "School Districts" as the Reason Code. You must register through the Cogent PA Dept of Education site, not the PA Dept of Human Services or PA Dept of Public Welfare.

Or, if you have been a Pennsylvania resident for the past 10 consecutive years, you may submit the Volunteer Affidavit in place of fingerprinting. The affidavit must be notarized (notary services are available at the Administrative Services Center) and the original affidavit must be on file in the HR Office.

4. Volunteer Agreement - Please be sure to include the names of the schools/buildings where you will be volunteering.

Thanks to all for helping to make this 2015 Holiday season so special for those within and around our school community!

A Note of Thanks from Christ's Home
