Criminal Background Checks: Fingerprint Considerations and Resources
The CCDBG Act of 2014 requires CCDF Lead Agencies to complete comprehensive background checks for child care staff members and prospective staff members. 45 CFR 98.43(b) of the Final CCDF Rule specifies that criminal background checks of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Next Generation Identification (NGI) system and criminal repository of the current state of residence must include fingerprints. NCSIA has created a brief and a one-page resource on the topic of fingerprinting in criminal background checks.
These resources were distributed at the 2018 State And Territory Administrators Meeting (STAM).
