Employee Requirements

When working in a school environment there are several requirements that need to be met in order to start and maintain employment. 

Security and Safety

Pennsylvania School Law requires that all applicants for employment in public and private schools, including employees of independent contractors, undergo background checks if they will have direct contact with students. Links to the clearance pages can be found below. You will find more information about the requirements by clicking here.


As a contractor working in a school in Pennsylvania, you will also be required to be tested for TB. For more information, 28 PA Code, Chapter 23 Section 23.44 covers Tuberculin testing of school personnel. You can download the School Personnel Health Record form by clicking here
