  Do you want to get your security clearances to help at Masterman School but have questions about how to do it? Or just haven’t made the time to do it? Come to an event designed to help Masterman parents and guardians apply for their Criminal History and/or Child Abuse security clearances online in Masterman School on Monday, Sept. 21. The event will be held in Room 101, beginning at 3:30pm after

​ ​
school and ending at 7:30pm. Parents who have been through the process will be available to help you.

If you haven't yet applied for clearances, now is the time! The school needs your volunteer support, and more volunteer activities at the school now require security clearances.

If you want to attend, here’s what you need to do:

STEP 1: Determine what clearances you need by reading this document of FAQs:  http://bit.ly/1LEoWqR

STEP 2: Gather the information you need for the applications. For example:

            Criminal History Application: Social Security Number

            Child Abuse History Application:

·       Social Security Number,

·       A list of addresses where you have lived since 1975 (if you cannot recall every address, include as much information as you recall), and

·       A list of people who lived with you at those addresses (since 1975) and their relationship to you (again, complete this to the best of your knowledge).

Applications for the Criminal History and the Child Abuse security clearances are free for volunteers.

STEP 3: Bring your information to the school during the Sept. 21 event and use the

 ChromeBooks to apply for the clearances online. Give yourself at least 1-1.5 hours to complete the two applications. Arrive in Room 101 no later than 6:30pm if you want to complete the applications there. The school must lock up for the night after 7:30pm.

The online application for the Criminal History form is relatively easy; the online application/process for the Child Abuse security clearance is somewhat complicated, but step-by-step instructions will be available. Instructions for how to obtain the FBI clearance, which some parents may need, will also be available but cannot be completed at this event.
