(1). The applicant’s current employer (regardless of whether the employer was a school entity and/or where the applicant had direct contact with children);

(3). All former employers where the applicant was employed in a position where he or she had direct contact with children.

ACT 168 Form

Tuberculin Testing of School Personnel

The Pennsylvania Public School Code, Section 1418(b) requires that school personnel be tested for TB. School personnel to be tested include employees and independent contractors who provide direct services to students on behalf of a school, including but not limited to teachers, nurses, administrators, physicians, dentists, dental hygienists, custodians, janitors, cooks, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, librarians, psychologists, audiologists and counselors, and student teachers and volunteers. The Department of Health defines "direct services" as those persons in direct contact with students 10 or more hours/week. The law does not contain a provision to allow modifications for school staff/volunteers. They must be tested "prior to working for the school."  The person shall provide to the school a form that shows the TB test was administered within three months prior to the date the school receives the form.
