Please note that you may need to make additional copies of the attached ACT 168 Verification Form. If you are currently unemployed and have no previous employers that fit the above criteria mark the “not applicable” box and complete Section 1.
Complete and submit an ACT 168 form for the following:
Your current employer(s)
Your former employer(s) that were school entities; and
Your former employer(s) where you were employed in a position where you had direct contact with children. Direct contact with children means, “The possibility of care, supervision guidance or control of children or routine interaction with children.”
1) First, complete the top section with the name of your current/former employer and their contact information. (Please include the employer’s fax number or email address and telephone number. If this is not complete we will return the form to you and this will delay the date you can begin work.)
