CAPS Information for Sponsors

Thank you for agreeing to be a CAPS Sponsor and for providing an invaluable learning opportunity to our Lower Moreland High School seniors.
To be a CAPS Sponsor, State law now requires you to provide background clearances to serve in this volunteer role to help ensure the safety and security of our students.
Below are links to apply for each clearance.  The District will need all three clearances before a CAPS experience can begin.
Please print out the "Response for Criminal Record Check" and provide to the District.  Results will be available immediately on-line and there is no cost.
You will need to create an individual account and apply for this clearances on-line.  It may take up to 2 weeks for the results to be ready for you to print.  There is no cost.

3. You will need to submit either a signed and witnessed Disclosure Statement if you have lived in Pennsylvania continuously for the last 10 years.  If you have not lived in PA continuously for the last 10 years, then you will need to obtain Federal (FBI) Criminal History Record Information-go through the Department of Education portal, not the Department of Public Welfare portal.  The cost is $27; the District will reimburse you for this cost once your clearance is received.   You will need to provide the District with your registration number (which starts with "PAE") so that the District can obtain your results.

Please note: a CAPS placement cannot start until the District has received these clearances. Please apply for them as soon as you agree to be a CAPS sponsor. We would like all clearances by April 1, 2017 to allow time for processing. 

Please return the clearances via email to or by email to the Office of Human Resources, 2551 Murray Avenue, Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006.  Please indicate that the clearances are for CAPS. 


We are committed to answering any questions that you may have and helping you in this process. Please contact Cheryl Galdo, Director of Human Resources/Public Relations, with any questions at 215-938-0272 or via e-mail at


Thank you!
