Updated SDP Volunteer Policy
The clearance requirement for chaperones attending trips was recently updated by the Board of Education.
All field trip and chaperone activities require Volunteer Paperwork to be on file in the school’s Main Office. That means you’ll need clearances to be a chaperone.
If you have additional questions or concerns regarding the volunteer clearance process, please reach out to the District’s Family and Community Engagement Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (215) 400-4180.
