   78         4. Physical development.
   79         5. Self-regulation.
   81  By July 1, 2015, the Office of Early Learning shall develop and
   82  implement an online training course on the performance standards
   83  for school readiness program provider personnel pursuant to this
   84  paragraph.
   85         (m) Adopt by rule a standard statewide provider contract to
   86  be used with each school readiness program provider, with
   87  standardized attachments by provider type. The office shall
   88  publish a copy of the standard statewide provider contract on

   90  at a minimum, provisions that:
   91         1. Govern for provider probation, termination for cause,
   92  and emergency termination for those actions or inactions of a
   93  provider that pose an immediate and serious danger to the

   95  statewide provider contract must shall also include appropriate
   96  due process procedures. During the pendency of an appeal of a
   97  termination, the provider may not continue to offer its
   98  services.
   99         2. Require each provider that is eligible to provide the
  100  program pursuant to s. 1002.88(1)(a) to conspicuously post
  101  violations, in an area visible to parents, on the premises,
  102  pursuant to s. 402.3125(1)(b), and to post class I and class II
  103  violations, as defined by rule of the Department of Children and
  104  Families, which result in disciplinary action, on the provider’s

  106  language to describe each violation with specificity and include
  107  a copy of the citation and the contact information of the
  108  Department of Children and Families or the local licensing
  109  agency from which the parent may obtain additional information
  110  regarding the citation. The provider must post such violations
  111  within 24 hours after receipt of the citation. Additionally,
  112  such provider shall post each inspection report on the premises
  113  in an area visible to parents, which report must remain posted
  114  until the next inspection report is available.
  115         3. Specify that child care personnel employed by the
  116  provider who are responsible for supervising children in care
  117  must be trained in developmentally appropriate practices aligned
  118  to the age and needs of children over which the personnel are
  119  assigned supervision duties. This requirement is met by
  120  completion of developmentally appropriate practice courses
  121  administered by the Department of Children and Families under s.
  122  402.305(2)(d)1. within 30 days after being assigned such
  123  children if the child care personnel has not previously
  124  completed the training.
  125         4. Require child care personnel who are employed by the
  126  provider to complete an online training course on the
  127  performance standards adopted pursuant to paragraph (j).
  129  Any provision imposed upon a provider that is inconsistent with,
  130  or prohibited by, law is void and unenforceable.
  131         (p) Monitor and evaluate the performance of each early
  132  learning coalition in administering the school readiness program
  133  and the Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program, ensuring
  134  proper payments for school readiness program and Voluntary
  135  Prekindergarten Education Program services, and implementing the
  136  coalition’s school readiness program plan, and administering the
  137  Voluntary Prekindergarten Education Program. These monitoring
  138  and performance evaluations must include, at a minimum, onsite
  139  monitoring of each coalition’s finances, management, operations,
  140  and programs.
  141         Section 25. Subsections (8) and (20) of section 1002.84,
  142  Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
  143         1002.84 Early learning coalitions; school readiness powers
  144  and duties.—Each early learning coalition shall:
  145         (8) Establish a parent sliding fee scale that requires a
  146  parent copayment to participate in the school readiness program.
  147  Providers are required to collect the parent’s copayment. A
  148  coalition may, on a case-by-case basis, waive the copayment for
  149  an at-risk child or temporarily waive the copayment for a child
  150  whose family’s income is at or below the federal poverty level
  151  and family experiences a natural disaster or an event that
  152  limits the parent’s ability to pay, such as incarceration,
  153  placement in residential treatment, or becoming homeless, or an
  154  emergency situation such as a household fire or burglary, or
  155  while the parent is participating in parenting classes. A parent
  156  may not transfer school readiness program services to another
  157  school readiness program provider until the parent has submitted
  158  documentation from the current school readiness program provider
  159  to the early learning coalition stating that the parent has
  160  satisfactorily fulfilled the copayment obligation.
  161         (20) To increase transparency and accountability, comply
  162  with the requirements of this section before contracting with a
  163  member of the coalition, an employee of the coalition, or a
  164  relative, as defined in s. 112.3143(1) s. 112.3143(1)(b), of a
  165  coalition member or of an employee of the coalition. Such
  166  contracts may not be executed without the approval of the
  167  office. Such contracts, as well as documentation demonstrating
  168  adherence to this section by the coalition, must be approved by
  169  a two-thirds vote of the coalition, a quorum having been
  170  established; all conflicts of interest must be disclosed before
  171  the vote; and any member who may benefit from the contract, or
  172  whose relative may benefit from the contract, must abstain from
  173  the vote. A contract under $25,000 between an early learning
  174  coalition and a member of that coalition or between a relative,
  175  as defined in s. 112.3143(1) s. 112.3143(1)(b), of a coalition
  176  member or of an employee of the coalition is not required to
  177  have the prior approval of the office but must be approved by a
  178  two-thirds vote of the coalition, a quorum having been
  179  established, and must be reported to the office within 30 days
  180  after approval. If a contract cannot be approved by the office,
  181  a review of the decision to disapprove the contract may be
  182  requested by the early learning coalition or other parties to
  183  the disapproved contract.
  184         Section 26. Paragraphs (c) and (h) of subsection (1) and
  185  subsections (6) through (8) of section 1002.87, Florida
  186  Statutes, are amended to read:
  187         1002.87 School readiness program; eligibility and
  188  enrollment.—
  189         (1) Effective August 1, 2013, or upon reevaluation of
  190  eligibility for children currently served, whichever is later,
  191  each early learning coalition shall give priority for
  192  participation in the school readiness program as follows:
  193         (c) Priority shall be given next to a child from birth to
  194  the beginning of the school year for which the child is eligible
  195  for admission to kindergarten in a public school under s.
  196  1003.21(1)(a)2. who is from a working family that is
  197  economically disadvantaged, and may include such child’s
  198  eligible siblings, beginning with the school year in which the
  199  sibling is eligible for admission to kindergarten in a public
  200  school under s. 1003.21(1)(a)2. until the beginning of the
  201  school year in which the sibling enters is eligible to begin 6th
  202  grade, provided that the first priority for funding an eligible
  203  sibling is local revenues available to the coalition for funding
  204  direct services. However, a child eligible under this paragraph
  205  ceases to be eligible if his or her family income exceeds 200
  206  percent of the federal poverty level.
  207         (h) Priority shall be given next to a child who has special
  208  needs, has been determined eligible as an infant or toddler from
  209  birth to 3 years of age with an individualized family support
  210  plan receiving early intervention services or as a student with
  211  a disability with, has a current individual education plan with
  212  a Florida school district, and is not younger than 3 years of
  213  age. A special needs child eligible under this paragraph remains
  214  eligible until the child is eligible for admission to
  215  kindergarten in a public school under s. 1003.21(1)(a)2.
  216         (6) Eligibility for each child must be reevaluated
  217  annually. Upon reevaluation, a child may not continue to receive
  218  school readiness program services if he or she has ceased to be
  219  eligible under this section. If a child no longer meets
  220  eligibility or program requirements, the coalition must
  221  immediately notify the child’s parent and the provider that
  222  funding will end 2 weeks after the date on which the child was
  223  determined to be ineligible or when the current child care
  224  authorization expires, whichever occurs first.
  225         (7) If a coalition disenrolls children from the school
  226  readiness program due to lack of funding or a change in
  227  eligibility priorities, the coalition must disenroll the
  228  children in reverse order of the eligibility priorities listed
  229  in subsection (1) beginning with children from families with the
  230  highest family incomes. A notice of disenrollment must be sent
  231  to the parent and school readiness program provider at least 2
  232  weeks before disenrollment or the expiration of the current
  233  child care authorization, whichever occurs first, to provide
  234  adequate time for the parent to arrange alternative care for the
  235  child. However, an at-risk child receiving services from the
  236  Child Welfare Program Office of the Department of Children and
  237  Families may not be disenrolled from the program without the
  238  written approval of the Child Welfare Program Office of the
  239  Department of Children and Families or the community-based lead
  240  agency.
  241         (8) If a child is absent from the program for 2 consecutive
  242  days without parental notification to the program of such
  243  absence, the school readiness program provider shall contact the
  244  parent and determine the cause for absence and expected date of
  245  return. If a child is absent from the program for 5 consecutive
  246  days without parental notification to the program of such
  247  absence, the school readiness program provider shall report the
  248  absence to the early learning coalition for a determination of
  249  the need for continued care.
  250         Section 27. Paragraphs (a) through (c) and (l) through (q)
  251  of subsection (1) of section 1002.88, Florida Statutes, are
  252  amended, present subsections (2) and (3) are renumbered as
  253  subsections (4) and (5), respectively, present subsection (2) is
  254  amended, and new subsections (2) and (3) are added to that
  255  section, to read:
  256         1002.88 School readiness program provider standards;
  257  eligibility to deliver the school readiness program.—
  258         (1) To be eligible to deliver the school readiness program,
  259  a school readiness program provider must:
  260         (a)1. Be a nonpublic school in substantial compliance with
  261  s. 402.3025(2)(d), a child care facility licensed under s.
  262  402.305, a family day care home licensed or registered under s.
  263  402.313, a large family child care home licensed under s.
  264  402.3131, or a child care facility exempt from licensure
  265  operating under s. 402.316(4);
  266         2. Be an entity that is part of Florida’s education system
  267  under s. 1000.04(1); a public school or nonpublic school exempt
  268  from licensure under s. 402.3025, a faith-based child care
  269  provider exempt from licensure under s. 402.316, a before-school
  270  or after-school program described in s. 402.305(1)(c), or
  271         3.Be an informal child care provider to the extent
  272  authorized in the state’s Child Care and Development Fund Plan
  273  as approved by the United States Department of Health and Human
  274  Services pursuant to 45 C.F.R. s. 98.18.
  275         (b) Provide instruction and activities to enhance the age
  276  appropriate progress of each child in attaining the child
  277  development standards adopted by the office pursuant to s.
  278  1002.82(2)(j). A provider should include activities to foster
  279  brain development in infants and toddlers; provide an
  280  environment that is rich in language and music and filled with
  281  objects of various colors, shapes, textures, and sizes to
  282  stimulate visual, tactile, auditory, and linguistic senses; and
  283  include 30 minutes of reading to children each day. A provider
  284  must provide parents information on child development,
  285  expectations for parent engagement, the daily schedule, and the
  286  attendance policy.
  287         (c) Provide basic health and safety of its premises and
  288  facilities in accordance with applicable licensing and
  289  inspection requirements and compliance with requirements for
  290  age-appropriate immunizations of children enrolled in the school
  291  readiness program. For a child care facility, a large family
  292  child care home, or a licensed family day care home, compliance
  293  with s. 402.305, s. 402.3131, or s. 402.313 satisfies this
  294  requirement. For a public or nonpublic school, compliance with
  295  ss. s. 402.3025 or s. 1003.22 and 1013.12 satisfies this
  296  requirement. For a nonpublic school, compliance with s.
  297  402.3025(2)(d) satisfies this requirement. For a facility exempt
  298  from licensure, compliance with s. 402.316(4) satisfies this
  299  requirement. For an informal provider, substantial compliance as
  300  defined in s. 402.302(17) satisfies this requirement. A provider
  301  shall be denied initial eligibility to offer the program if the
  302  provider has been cited for a class I violation in the 12 months
  303  before seeking eligibility and the Office of Early Learning
  304  determines that denial of initial eligibility is appropriate
  305  after a review of the violation and the provider’s licensure
  306  history. The Office of Early Learning shall establish a
  307  procedure of due process which ensures each provider the
  308  opportunity to appeal such a denial of initial eligibility to
  309  offer the program. The decision of the Office of Early Learning
  310  is not subject to the provisions of the Administrative Procedure
  311  Act, chapter 120 A faith-based child care provider, an informal
  312  child care provider, or a nonpublic school, exempt from
  313  licensure under s. 402.316 or s. 402.3025, shall annually
  314  complete the health and safety checklist adopted by the office,
  315  post the checklist prominently on its premises in plain sight
  316  for visitors and parents, and submit it annually to its local
  317  early learning coalition.
  318         (l) For a provider that is not an informal provider,
  319  Maintain general liability insurance and provide the coalition
  320  with written evidence of general liability insurance coverage,
  321  including coverage for transportation of children if school
  322  readiness program children are transported by the provider. A
  323  private provider must obtain and retain an insurance policy that
  324  provides a minimum of $100,000 of coverage per occurrence and a
  325  minimum of $300,000 general aggregate coverage. The office may
  326  authorize lower limits upon request, as appropriate. A provider
  327  must add the coalition as a named certificateholder and as an
  328  additional insured. A private provider must provide the
  329  coalition with a minimum of 10 calendar days’ advance written
  330  notice of cancellation of or changes to coverage. The general
  331  liability insurance required by this paragraph must remain in
  332  full force and effect for the entire period of the provider
  333  contract with the coalition.
  334         (m) For a provider that is an informal provider, comply
  335  with the provisions of paragraph (l) or maintain homeowner’s
  336  liability insurance and, if applicable, a business rider. If an
  337  informal provider chooses to maintain a homeowner’s policy, the
  338  provider must obtain and retain a homeowner’s insurance policy
  339  that provides a minimum of $100,000 of coverage per occurrence
  340  and a minimum of $300,000 general aggregate coverage. The office
  341  may authorize lower limits upon request, as appropriate. An
  342  informal provider must add the coalition as a named
  343  certificateholder and as an additional insured. An informal
  344  provider must provide the coalition with a minimum of 10
  345  calendar days’ advance written notice of cancellation of or
  346  changes to coverage. The general liability insurance required by
  347  this paragraph must remain in full force and effect for the
  348  entire period of the provider’s contract with the coalition.
  349         (m)(n) Obtain and maintain any required workers’
  350  compensation insurance under chapter 440 and any required
  351  reemployment assistance or unemployment compensation coverage
  352  under chapter 443, unless exempt under state or federal law.
  353         (n)(o) Notwithstanding paragraph (l), for a provider that
  354  is a state agency or a subdivision thereof, as defined in s.
  355  768.28(2), agree to notify the coalition of any additional
  356  liability coverage maintained by the provider in addition to
  357  that otherwise established under s. 768.28. The provider shall
  358  indemnify the coalition to the extent permitted by s. 768.28.
  359         (o)(p) Execute the standard statewide provider contract
  360  adopted by the office.
  361         (p)(q) Operate on a full-time and part-time basis and
  362  provide extended-day and extended-year services to the maximum
  363  extent possible without compromising the quality of the program
  364  to meet the needs of parents who work.
  365         (2) Beginning January 1, 2016, child care personnel
  366  employed by a school readiness program provider must hold a high
  367  school diploma or its equivalent and be at least 18 years of
  368  age, unless the personnel are not responsible for supervising
