How can I transfer a BRC suitability determination if there is a current BRC from another program?

How can I transfer a candidate’s BRC suitability determination if they already have a current BRC on file from another program? Can I transfer a candidate’s BRC suitability determination to my program if they are working in an unsupervised “Conditional” status at another program?

EEC is implementing “suitability” transfer for eligible candidates if certain rules are met. This is required under federal law and EEC regulations.  Note that unsupervised “conditional” or supervised “provisional” status may not be transferred from one program to another.

For more information, please refer to the Background Record Check Policies on EEC’s website, specifically: Transfer of Suitability and Frequency of BRC’s (EEC BRC POLICY NUMBER: 09-006).

When renewing a program license, can EEC provide a staff roster for the program?

When renewing a program license, can EEC provide a staff roster for the program? How far in advance of a license renewal should a program provide the staff roster to the EEC licensor?

Each licensed program is responsible for keeping its own staff list and must provide a copy of it to their EEC licensor with the renewal application. The staff roster must be current as of the date of the renewal request. EEC cannot provide a program with a copy of their staff roster as EEC is not the hiring authority for a licensed program. The program licensor will match up the staff list provided to EEC’s BRC records to check the status of each person being run. The list may be provided to your licensor no earlier than 120 days but no later than 30 days prior to your license expiring. You should provide the information as much in advance as possible because you will receive notices from the LEAD system until you provide the information and your BRC compliance can be confirmed.

What is “annual consent”?

What is “annual consent”?

Annual consent is a new EEC BRC regulatory requirement that has not gone into effect yet.  When implemented, individuals will be asked to sign a consent form that will allow EEC to complete daily BRC checks on them.  An individual’s consent to have daily BRCs run on them will be requested annually by EEC. This is, however not expected to go into effect until 2020. EEC will provide more information prior to implementing “annual consent”.

Will I receive any CEUs for attending previous EEC webinar trainings on the new BRC requirements?

Will I receive any CEUs for attending previous EEC webinar trainings on the new BRC requirements?

Currently no CEUs or certificates are being offered for Background Record Check (BRC) related trainings. The Department of Early Education and Care is looking into whether credit for license renewal can be offered for future trainings.
