Technical Assistance:
It is important to clearly identify training hours used to qualify an individual as lead teacher. If you qualify the individual under 30-(3)-260-A-4 please be aware that the total number of training hours is 24 and those hours are to be completed within 6 months prior to beginning employment or being promoted and within 1 month after beginning in the lead teacher position. These training hours are to always be maintained in the staff record so that qualifications can be determined by the department. These training hours can take place on site but cannot be done while supervising children. Hire date, job title and promotion date with new job title are all to be clearly documented. Staff are to complete a Sworn Statement or Affirmation prior to their first date of employment. Central Registry Checks (CPS) and Criminal History Record Checks (CRC) are to be completed within (30) days of beginning employment. Completed checks require submission and return with results of the background check. If the CRC and CPS is not completed within (30) days, the individual is not to continue employment until the check is received. The only exception is if you have written documentation of proof that the check was submitted/mailed within (7) calendar days. Staff are to follow up with the applicable agency with (4) working days of the check not being received back within the (30) days of employment. If the check was not received by the applicable agency, staff are to re-submit the check within (5) working days of the contact. All background checks (Sworn Statement or Affirmation, Criminal History Record Check and Central Registry Checks) are to be updated every 3 years. New staff that do not have a completed Criminal History Record Check are to remain in direct supervision of a staff member with a completed Criminal History Record Check.
