VOLUNTEER COACHES -- Many volunteer coaches eventually become paid employees of EFSD. If you will be serving as a volunteer coach, please obtain your clearances as an EMPLOYEE. (Employee clearances can be used to volunteer, but volunteer clearances cannot be used for employment). This will save you from the need to get your clearances twice.
