The CTC processes Fingerprint Background Checks (FBCs) 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 a one-time FBC must be completed. The FBC includes FBI, Wisconsin DOJ, and DHS Caregiver Check results, which meets the annual CBC requirement above. Investigators are responsible for any costs incurred to clarify the status of an individual’s background clearance. Contact CTC Research Coordinator, Carrie Arneson, firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.263.5192 with requests for CBCs.
