Individuals who are required to complete a background check through the Office of Early Childhood must submit four things:
- Complete an“Authorization for Release of Information from DCF” form,
- Read the three sections of “FBI Privacy Notices” and sign the form,
- Fingerprints, preferably digital
- Pay the processing fee. OEC will pay this fee beginning August 3 until 12/31/2020, or until the allocated funds are exhausted.
You can fulfill the first two requirements right here by completing these online versions of the DCF form and FBI Privacy Notices document. When you are done, you can schedule an appointment to get fingerprinted digitally at no cost.
