Rule Workshops: School-Age Rule

The Department of Children and Families, Office of Child Care Regulation, will be conducting two public workshops regarding rule development of School-Age Child Care standards to amend Chapter 65C-22 Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). The prior two public workshops that were held in February of this year were well attended and provided a tremendous amount of feedback from the community. The public workshop setting is an opportunity for the Department to receive comments from providers, community partners, coalition staff, stakeholders, and the general public related to the rule development. Please share this information with those agencies, providers, and provider organizations in your area that have an interest/investment in this issue. These meetings are open to the public and do not require a reservation.
