News Council, other human services orgs offer testimony on background record checks

The Providers’ Council, along with the Children’s League of Massachusetts, the Association for Behavioral Healthcare and the Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools  submitted joint comments to the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) this week on proposed regulation amendments to 606 CMR 14.00: Criminal offender and other background record checks (BRC) as they apply to residential programs and placement agencies.

“Our organizations want to continue to work with EEC to protect the care of the children of our Commonwealth but not unduly prolong the BRC process which impacts the ability of children to access the safe, supportive placements they need to help them heal from trauma,” the trade organizations said in a statement.
