    • You will always be volunteering directly under the supervision and direction of a school administrator, a teacher or other member of the school staff.
    • You have never been convicted of a disqualifying crime in Pennsylvania, or the corresponding offenses under the laws of any other jurisdiction and that they have lived in the state of PA for 10 years or more.
