HH Volunteer Information
Thank you for your interest in volunteering! Below is information to help you get all the required items necessary to be a volunteer.
Pennsylvania law requires all persons having direct contact with school children to obtain background checks and clearances. In the best interest of the safety and security of our students, Hatboro-Horsham School District requires the submission of these clearances prior to volunteering.
Please complete the volunteer application by opening the following link: Volunteer Application
See below for the required clearances:
Clearances provided must be dated within one calendar year.
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.
PA Child Abuse History Certification (electronic) - Click "Create Individual Account". The Keystone Key is a username 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. Or PA Child Abuse History Clearance (paper form).
FBI Fingerprinting (2 Options)
If you have been a Pennsylvania resident for the past 10 consecutive years, you may submit the Volunteer Affirmation in place of fingerprinting.
If you have been a Pennsylvania resident fewer than 10 consecutive years, you must complete the fingerprinting process. Enroll at IdentoGo and make an appointment for digital fingerprinting at a location of your choice.
TB TEST: (Only required if you spend 10 hours or more a week with students)
Volunteer Coaches and Volunteers who spend 10 hours or more a week with students MUST submit results of a recent TB test prior to volunteering. TB tests are available through your doctor's office, a minute clinic or a local pharmacy. Once the TB test is administered the results are read in 48-72 hours.
Coronavirus Vaccination Status: Hatboro-Horsham School District is now requiring COVID-19 Vaccine Status. If you are vaccinated, please fill out this survey OR attach a copy of your vaccine card to the email below. If you are NOT vaccinated, you must show proof of a negative Coronavirus test to the building nurse that is WITHIN 24 hours of the day you are volunteering! If you do not, you will NOT be able to volunteer at any of the Hatboro-Horsham schools, events, etc.
Once you have obtained your clearances, please send them directly to Volunteers@hatboro-horsham.org

We suggest a picture from about shoulder length which shows your face clearly. Using a solid background behind you if possible.
