Franklin Regional officials will host a workshop for employees and residents Nov. 15 on obtaining the proper clearances and background checks for volunteering at district events.

It will be from 4 to 8 p.m. in the computer lab at Heritage Elementary School, 3240 School Road in Murrysville.

There will not be a formal presentation, but volunteers will be on hand to help with applications.

Clearances must be renewed every five years, and include:

Child abuse clearances : $8 for employees; no cost for volunteers

State criminal history : $8 for employees; no cost for volunteers

FBI clearance : $24.25. Fingerprint scans by a mobile provider for this clearance will be available by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, email hroffice@franklinregional.k12.pa.us with your name, phone number and availability.

Attendees are asked to bring the following: a credit card if you are paying for a clearance; Social Security number; photo identification including driver's license or passport; all addresses of residence and the names of all household members including parents, siblings, spouses, roommates, etc., since 1975, if applying for the child-abuse clearance.

For those unable to attend the workshop, click the links above to start each clearance process.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
