Background Checks and PIAA Schools:


If you intend to work PIAA games, middle school or high school, in the upcoming season, this information is important to you.  Many individual schools now require this - regardless of how many years you've been officiating.


Pennsylvania has had ACT 153 in place since 2014.  It requires that background checks be in place for people that interact with students.  Three clearances are required: Child Abuse Clearance (from the PA Department of Human Services), Criminal History Record Clearance (from PA State Police Reports), Federal Criminal History Clearance (from FBI Reports).


Although the PIAA is still determining how they'll position the requirement,  several schools have stated they will not allow any official to work unless those clearances were provided to their offices.


New officials have been required to get these for a few years.  "Grandfathered" officials in the GPLOA should get these as well.
