Thank you to everyone who responded to our recent survey! In addition to the critical information we received in your responses, we also received some questions. We’ll be highlighting some of those questions and providing answers in this and future newsletters.
Question: Does the reopening requirements and/or information apply to centers or Type B’s already open with a pandemic license or is it just for those that were closed during the pandemic? Do we (those operating under pandemic license) need to complete the reopen form in OCCRRA?
Answer: The reopening requirements and information applies to all programs including those that were operating under a pandemic license. All programs need to complete the reopen form in OCQLS so the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services knows which programs plan to reopen and when.
Question: How long would these low ratios last?
Answer: We do not know how long the lower ratios will last. That will be determined by the Governor’s office and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.4C for Children will share this information in our communications as soon as we know.
