Clearances Conundrum

Here in PA, some officials are likely facing a conundrum concerning clearances. Clearances became mandatory about five years ago, and are good for five years, so many officials must now renew them. Two of them can be done on-line (although I do not know whether the coronavirus affects the agencies' ability to respond). Even assuming that these two clearances can be renewed, the offices where the third--fingerprints for FBI review, which obviously must be done in person--are closed.

Consequently, some officials will probably not have current clearances, and PIAA informed us that it is powerless to alter or modify this statutory requirement.

PA schools are closed for the year and school sports canceled; summer sports (e.g., American Legion baseball, summer basketball) have either been canceled or are in doubt, so that gives officials another several months to renew their clearances. But if offices and agencies don't resume something close to normal business before the fall school seasons, where does that leave officials? And where does that leave assigners, schools and leagues if there is a resulting shortage of qualified officials?

Update: Clearances Deadline

On May 8, 2020, PA Governor Wolf signed a bill extending the expiration date for FBI clearances until December 31, 2020. Officials who had expiring but valid FBI clearances now have until December 21, 2020 to renew them.

The state police and child service clearances, both of which can be done on-line, must still be updated in a timely manner.
