    Hello PASSWP Members!


    We would like to present to you a How-To Become a Certified SSW Document: TIMS how to document Final Draft.docx.  We wish to thank Beth-Ann McConnell and her friends from the Capital Area Intermediate Unit for being the guina pig, jumping through all the hoops, and bugging PDE for answers to questions. 


    Attached you will find the How-To document with step by step instructions with pictures!!!  There is also the 338V form that you need. In addition to the 338 V form (not the 338A form) you will need an official transcript sent via email or mailed to PDE. You will upload Professional License and the 338V form after you pay and submit. 


    Additionally, BethAnn highlighted stuff that cannot be skipped. It won’t work correctly if you don’t follow the steps.  There is a place have to say "No" to the question about ‘Will a PA Institution verify that you meet certification requirements for the certificate that you are applying for?’.   Answer No, which was  doubled checked this with PDE.  Also, when you apply and pay you will be given a 338 A form and cover letter.  You don't actually use this form and PDE said we have to use the 338 V form. 


    If you have specific questions that are not answered in the How-To document, please contact ra-edcertquestions@pa.gov directly. 


    Good Luck!

    This toolkit is meant to be utilized as a practical guideline for schools to create their own policies and procedures in assessing threats. Every school and school district is unique and will therefore present with characteristics requiring an individualized approach. Every school should have policies in place to properly manage school threats, identify, assess, and intervene with students who pose a risk, and effectively deal with the aftermath of a violent school act, including the complex trauma and grief that follow. We hope this toolkit serves as a resource to support safer schools in assessing threats.

    We would like to emphasize that violent acts at school are extremely rare and schools continue to remain very safe. However, when a violent act does occur this results in a significant impact on the school and surrounding community leaving far-reaching and long-lasting effects.
