ELECTRONIC ATTENDANCE SYSTEM TRAINING

Starting July 1, 2018, all providers accepting Working Connections Child Care subsidies are required to track attendance using an electronic attendance system. This applies to child care centers, family home child care providers, and Family, Friend and Neighbor (FFN) providers.

All providers who started accepting Working Connections or Seasonal Child Care subsidy payments prior to October 1, 2018 will be required to use an electronic attendance system by November 1, 2019. All providers who started accepting subsidy after October 1, 2018 have 90 days to complete the training and log a successful transaction using the Electronic Attendance System.

You can meet this requirement by attending one of our in-person trainings or requesting a house visit from a state-approved trainer and technical assistant.
