To keep you up to date on available fingerprinting locations, Child Care Regulation has posted a list of fingerprinting locations that are:
- Open or closed
- Operating with reduced or extended hours
You can find this List of IdentoGO Locations Affected by COVID-19 (PDF) on the Child Care Regulation Fingerprinting page. For closed locations, the list also includes the nearest open fingerprinting location and the distance to that location. CCR will update the list every Monday.
Additionally, CCR received clarification from the Texas Department of Public Safety. Effective immediately CCR must stop using fingerprint results obtained by the Texas Education Agency. This means that a prospective employee who already submitted a fingerprint check under TEA’s authority needs to submit new fingerprints to CCR using a location on the IdentoGO list.
Background checks are a critical component to ensuring children’s health and safety in your care. CCR recognizes the many challenges you are facing. Continue to contact your licensing inspector to discuss any issues or concerns your operation is experiencing.
