Temple University policy requires all adults age 18+  to comply with Pennsylvania laws mandating background clearances for all programs serving minor children that are hosted on campus.   Please check the box below certifying your school's teacher or assigned MESA coach has provided current (2015) proof of clearances.   Should you need assistance updating your clearances, the following resources are available.  Please forward copies or a statement of clearance certification on school letterhead to albert.l.tielebein@temple.edu.
