Please note that for candidates in family, group and school age child care programs, a CONVICTION or DELINQUENT disposition on an EEC BRC for any offense in this table is a Mandatory Disqualification; and an OPEN or PENDING charge is a Pending Mandatory Disqualification.
A PENDING, OPEN, CONVICITON, or DELINQUENT disposition on an EEC BRC for any offense in this table is considered a Presumptive Disqualification. A NON CONVICTION or NON DELINQUENT disposition on an EEC BRC for any offense in the Mandatory Disqualifications table is also considered a Presumptive Disqualification.
Any disposition for any offense listed in this table, including any charge in Addendum A, is considered a Discretionary Disqualification. A NON CONVICTION or NON DELINQUENT disposition on any offense in the Presumptive Disqualifications table is also considered a Discretionary Disqualification.
This policy describes how background record check findings that fall within the mandatory disqualification category will be reviewed if the finding was a juvenile offense adjudicated as "delinquent".
