Child and Youth Protection Policy Training Resources
Thank you to the churches who have already participated in one of the Child and Youth Protection Policy training opportunities in the AC District. Below are the slides from the training in 2021.
One update for the CYPP template is that the Solo Driver age has changed to 21. It is correct on the slides but not on the policy template.
Please contact the AC District office if you need clarification about the policy, or have questions or concerns.

E-Verify Process New for 2021 -
Governor DeSantis signed into law a state mandate requiring all public employers and any private employer that has a contract with a public employer, or a private employers that apply for taxpayer-funded incentives through the state of Department of Economic Opportunity to register with and use E-Verify to confirm the work eligibility of their new hires beginning January 1, 2021. This mandate also requires if a contract employee (someone you provide a 1099) is retained by a private employer, the employer must verify the contract employee’s eligibility upon renewal or extension of a contract completing an I-9 (copy attached). State agencies must also include a provision in contracts for the provision of goods and services, certifying that contractors will use E-Verify to verify the employment of new employees employed by the contractor (the church, pre-school, school) during the contract term to perform employment duties in Florida. Therefore, any Church, pre-school or school that is entering into new contracts with state agencies or public employers , such as the State of Florida Statewide Voluntary Prekindergarten Provide Contract (Form OEL-VPK 20), are required to use E-Verify for your new employees. You do not need to perform the E-Verify process for your current employees.
I have included links to the Federal E-Verify websites and Florida Statue 288.061.
