HB 2784 adds language regarding background checks indicating that for purposes of renewal of the background clearance or certificate, all agency licensees holding a license, persons who are employees, and persons who have been previously qualified by the department, must submit a new background application to the department on a date to be determined by the department. Applicable fees apply to background clearance renewal applications.
Payment requirements do not apply to:
- persons who provide regularly scheduled care for a child or children in the home of the provider or in the home of the child or children for periods of less than 24 hours or, if necessary due to the nature of the parent’s work, for periods of 24+ hours;
- persons who receive child care subsidies; and
- persons who are exempt from licensing.
