Federal & State Clearance Requirements
Pennsylvania law requires that companies entering into co-op or internship agreements (paid and unpaid) with public schools designate one adult employee to secure federal and state clearances. He or she should be selected in consultation with a Lehigh Career & Technical Institute school-to-career coordinator and will supervise the co-op or internship student. The designee must obtain the following clearances:
Act 114: Federal Criminal History Record (Fingerprinting)
Act 34: Pennsylvania State Criminal Record Check
Act 151: Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance
We recommend online registration for quicker processing, but you also have the option of submitting forms by mail. Once obtained, the clearances are valid for 60 months. Questions? Call LCTI’s School-to-Career Office at 610-799-1361.
LCTI applicants, new employees, volunteers and independent contractors may have different clearance requirements. Please visit lcti.org/work-lcti for details.
