Important Update for All Employees, Volunteers, and Substitutes
for the Dover Area School District

On July 1, 2015, the Pennsylvania Legislature again amended the Child Protective Services Law.  The most recent changes came to us through Act 15 of 2015, which focuses on criminal background checks and impacts everyone employed, substituting or volunteering in a school district.

Note: The Dover Area School District has extended the internal deadline date to October 15, 2015 for those employees hired prior to the year 2012 to complete and submit their required clearances to the Human Resources Department. Please note; it is the obligation of each individual to accept the financial responsibility to obtain and submit all three (3) clearances to the district as required. When employees obtain their new clearances, they should submit them to the attention of Mrs. Heather Thomas – Payroll Coordinator/HR Secretary at the district Administration Building.  Please understand, this is a state mandate and as such requirements are placed on the district if documents are not provided by the deadline.

Qualified Substitutes Needed

The Dover Area School District is currently looking for qualified substitutes or guest teachers in grades K – 12 and in all subject areas.  Please visit the employment tab to apply.

WhatWasThere is an excellent web tool and mobile app that uses Google Maps technologies to provide users with an interactive experience through which they get to learn how different places looked in the past. It’s like a virtual time machine that takes you in a journey in space and time. When you install WhatWasThere on your iPad or iPhone and once it is launched, the app will detect the geographical location where you are and will provide you with any historic photographs that were captured nearby plotted on a map! You can also switch into Camera view to get an augmented reality experience of the history that surrounds you.
