The DCPS Clearance Process
All volunteers who interact directly with DCPS students are required to complete our clearance process. The three steps to this process are listed below.
1. Download and complete the Volunteer Application.
2. Complete a tuberculosis (TB) test with a physician.
The test must have been taken in the past 12 months and the results must be negative.
3. Bring the application, current TB test result and a state issued photo ID to our office where you will be fingerprinted.
We process and fingerprint volunteers on a walk-in basis from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. (Other times can sometimes be arranged if we are notified ahead of time.)
If you already have active federal security clearance please complete the federal security clearance verification letter in lieu of having DCPS fingerprint you.
