The CTC processes Caregiver Background Checks (CBCs) that are required by state law for project research staff and students who conduct research, including observation, in the Wisconsin Early Childhood Program (WECP). The Wisconsin Caregiver Law, licensure requirements, and WECP policy dictate that CBCs must be completed every 12 months. The CBC includes Wisconsin DOJ and DHS Caregiver Check results. Additional fees will apply for individuals who have resided in another state during the past 3 years; rates vary by state. Investigators are responsible for any costs incurred to clarify the status of an individual’s background clearance. Contact CTC Research Coordinator, Carrie Arneson, email@example.com or 608.263.5192 with requests for CBCs.
