All new employees of the West Shore School District are required to complete the PA Sexual Misconduct/Abuse Disclosure Release form (available here). This form must be completed for the applicant’s current employer. Additional forms must also be submitted for each position within the applicant's entire work history where they have had direct contact with children (i.e. previous teaching, day care, camp counselor positions, etc.).
Applicants complete page 1 of the form, sign and date page 2, and submit with application materials. The District is responsible for ensuring completion of Section 2 by the current/former employers.
All applicants are also required to obtain the following clearances:

Candidates can register to have their fingerprints taken at the new IDEMIA/Identogo locations. The process requires preregistration at https://uenroll.identogo.com/ and a service code for Pennsylvania public schools: 1KG6XN. When you enroll, you are given the opportunity to schedule an appointment at a local fingerprinting site. The updated fee for the clearance is $23.85. Candidates will need to select an appropriate identification document as a part of their registration and must bring it with them to the site when they are fingerprinted. Please Note: We have been notified that the New Cumberland location has closed and should not be selected for an appointment time even though it may be showing as available.
