Dear Early Learning Provider:
First and foremost, thank you for your patience during these challenging times. Included here are the minutes from the ECE Provider Call of 4-15-20, which we hope will be helpful to everyone.
Also, here is some additional information for closed sites:
To be considered “paying staff”
  1. You need to certify you are paying your staff.
  2. Paying staff means are paying a normal staffing compliment for the facility.
  3. You are required to pay 100% of your staff at their normal rate of pay.
  4. Your financial records must reflect that you paid at least the regular or average compliment of staff during the months the enhanced reimbursements, and special POC payments are being paid.
  5. The months of January and February 2020 can be used to establish your regular or average staff compliment numbers. 
As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions to  tina.shockley@doe.k12.de.us .
