EFFECTIVE TODAY 12/11/2018: Supervised "Provisional" Hiring Requirement for Group and School Age Child Care Programs (Message Posted: 12/11/2018)

The Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) is implementing changes to the Background Record Check (BRC) process for EEC programs, in accordance with federal mandates. EEC is committed to keeping you updated about the new BRC requirements so that your program and staff are well-informed about these changes.

As a reminder, beginning TODAY, December 11, 2018 Licensed Group and School Age Child Care programs will no longer be able to hire candidates to work in an unsupervised "conditional" status while their Background Record Check (BRC) is pending completion. Instead, a candidate undergoing a BRC for a Licensed Group and School Age Child Care program may only be hired in a supervised "provisional" status after completing a fingerprint scan and receiving approval of a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check.

What do I need to be hired in supervised "provisional" status on December 11, 2018 or after if I work in one of EEC's Group or School Age Child Care Programs?

  • Completion of the fingerprint scan*, which means that you must physically go to an IdentoGO site and have a live scan of your fingerprints taken.
  • Approval of a Sex Offender Registry Information (SORI) check.
  • Direct visual supervision of another member of the child care program who has received full BRC suitability from EEC.

* Eligibility for supervised "provisional" hiring does not require EEC's review and approval of a candidate's fingerprinting results.

NOTE: Group and School Age Child Care Program Licensees will not be eligible for supervised "provisional" status, and must receive and maintain proof of full BRC suitability from EEC through completion and approval of all background record checks, including the results of the fingerprint-based check.
