Disqualified Consent Forms- Occasionally an Educator will submit a consent form and later receive a "Disqualified" status. Disqualified means an issue occurred which makes the caregiver ineligible to work in childcare. This needs to be addressed before the educator can start or return to work.
The disqualified consent status could be due to a variety of reasons; incomplete/expired fingerprint, felony arrest, and/or child welfare substantiation, etc. Letters will be sent to both the provider and caregiver stating the reason for the disqualification. Once the letter is received, the educator will need to login to their I-LEAD account and re-submit their consent form with supporting documents that prove their eligibility to work in a child care setting.
Providers, please contact your consultant instead of removing a disqualified educator from the roster. So long as the educator is still on the Associated Educator roster as "Disqualified", they will have another "Begin Consent Form" button when the educator logs into their account.
When the educator logs onto their account and presses the new "Begin Consent Form" button, there will be an upload button available in the "Documentation" section (page 3) of the consent form to submit supporting paperwork. Please review the screenshot to verify all items can be easily read. Once the new consent form is signed and submitted, the supporting documents will be used to re-determine eligibility to work in a child care setting.
Upload Notes: To upload documents, please either scan or take a picture on your device and upload it to the appropriate section. Make sure anything on the file can be easily ready. If the file size is too big for upload, you will receive an error message. Make sure images are saved in "jpeg" or "pdf" format, are less than 100KB in size, and scanned documents are less than 300 dpi.
If the consent form is signed and submitted successfully, a message will appear confirming the submission and you will be re-routed to the I-LEAD Dashboard. The "Begin Consent Form" will disappear and the counter will reset and say "Current consent form expires in 364 days on...[the next expiration date]".
Please complete the annually required consent form 90 days before it expires.
