Background Checks for Licensed Child Day Centers [22 VAC 15 ‑ 51]
Action:
Establish new regulation to replace 22 VAC 15-50
[Withdrawn 11/14/2002]
 
General Information
Action Summary The regulation establishes background clearances for criminal convictions and founded complaints of child abuse and neglect for licensed child care centers and child care center systems. It prohibits the licensing of child care centers or child care center systems when designated persons associated with the center or system have certain criminal convictions or have ever been the subject of a founded complaint of child abuse or neglect. Centers and systems are prohibited from using a person for certain roles if the person has certain criminal convictions or has ever been the subject of a founded complaint of child abuse or neglect. Background clearances for other child welfare agencies are in the Minimum Standards for Background Clearances for Child Welfare Agencies, 22 VAC 40-191-10 et seq. The Regulation for Criminal Record Checks for Child Welfare Agencies, 22 VAC 15-050-10 et seq. is being repealed. The revisions required to amend 22 VAC 15-050-10 et seq. were so extensive that it is more efficient to repeal the existing regulation and promulgate a new regulation. The proposed new regulation incorporates significant Code of Virginia changes mandated by the 1998 General Assembly amendments, separating licensed child day center regulations, organizational changes requested during public comment, content changes requested during public comment, and clarifications.
