New Rule governing exemption from EC licensing requires minister’s letter—BethTravis

11 September 2014, 5:17 pm by Beth Travis 0 comments

Nothing has changed in the actual exemption language of FS 402.316, but the DCF is now requiring a letter from the minister stating that the EC program applying for exemption from licensing is a integral part of that church’s education program. The minister is expected to be from the church that owns and operates the EC program.

Schools that operate programs for children two years of age and younger who are not owned by a local church are not exempt from licensing for that EC portion of their program.

Schools not owned or operated by a local church with EC program for children two and younger either (1) have to be licensed for their two-years old and younger program, or (2) cease operating the EC portion, or (3) spin it off under a separate board. The latter two options would only apply if the school by principle and policy refuses to allow the state to license any part of its instructional program.
