 NWTC Wisconsin Caregiver Law Compliance

Early Childhood Education and Instructional Assistant Students:

NWTC is required to comply with the Wisconsin Caregiver Law (2009 Wisconsin ACT 27). The completion of a caregiver background check includes the review of criminal records for convictions of serious crimes or a history of improper behavior. Students accepted into this program must complete a background check through www.CertifiedBackground.com AND complete a Background Disclosure (BID) form disclosing any acts, crimes, or convictions prior to program entry and annually for the remainder of the program. Information regarding this process is provided to students immediately upon acceptance into the program. The information provided in the BID form must be truthful and match any findings on the criminal record check. Students with a criminal history may be denied access to placement at the discretion of the practicum site. Consequently, should a student have a history of convictions of serious crimes or a history of improper behaviors, NWTC cannot guarantee practicum placement or guarantee graduation within typical program timing.
