Everyone who is required to complete a background check through the Office of Early Childhood must complete four steps:
- Complete and sign an“Authorization for Release of Information from DCF” form,
- Read all three sections of “FBI Privacy Notices” and sign the form,
- Have their Fingerprints collected, preferably digitally by 211 Child Care
- Pay the processing fee. OEC is paying this fee for fingerprints submitted digitally or postmarked by April 1, 2022 or until the allocated funds are exhausted, whichever happens first.
Both forms, the fingerprints, and (after April 1, 2022) the processing fee must be received by OEC to process a background check.
Go Paperless!! Fulfill the first two requirements right here by completing the digital DCF form and FBI Privacy Notices document.
