High School Documentation Update: May 21, 2019

Beginning on July 1, 2019, The Registry will require documentation to verify a High School Diploma, High School Equivalency Diploma (HSED) or General Education Diploma (GED).
 
This requirement better aligns with licensing regulation DCF 251.05, which details staffing qualifications in a licensed group center. Without verification of a High School Diploma, HSED, or GED, individuals will not meet the preliminary qualifications for the following licensed positions:

  • Child Care Teacher
  • School-Age Group Leader / Teacher
  • Center Director (50 or fewer children)
  • School-Age Director (50 or fewer children)
  • Center Director (51 or more children)
  • School-Age Director (51 or more children)
  • Administrator
  • Center Director 51 or more in a licensed group center

These positions will no longer be listed on Registry Certificates of Achievement, effective July 1, 2019, if a High School Diploma, HSED, or GED is not verified on a Registry member's profile.  

It is highly recommended that ALL REGISTRY MEMBERS log in and check if their High School Diploma, HSED, or GED is verified.
 
Individuals who have their High School Diploma, HSED, or GED verified on the Education page of their Registry profile, do not need to take any action at this time. 
 
Individuals who do not have their High School Diploma, HSED, or GED verified by The Registry are advised to submit proper documentation to meet the current licensing regulation. 
 
Documentation, specifically needed to verify a High School Diploma, HSED, or GED, will be immediately processed and verified by The Registry for individuals with a current Registry membership. Current members can submit this documentation without a membership renewal if submitted to The Registry before July 1, 2019. 
 
Please note: If an individual's Registry membership is expired OR if a current Registry member submits documentation of a High School Diploma, HSED, or GED after July 1, 2019, the individual will be required to renew his/her Registry membership before any documentation can be processed and verified.
 
If you have any questions regarding this update, please contact us for assistance.
