Greetings Broward Providers:
DEL informed us they were experiencing technical difficulties with the EFS MODs system earlier today (8/24/22).
We received an update that as of 12:50 pm EST, the MODS system is back online and should be working correctly.
Thank you all for your patience.
The Early Learning Coalition of Broward
Per the State of Florida Division of Early Learning (DEL), The Early Learning Coalition will default to our (ELC of Broward) Max Reimbursement Base Rate regardless of the Provider's Private Pay Base Rate, effective July 1, 2022.
Base rate means the rate paid by the ELC before the additional dollar incentives (i.e., Gold Seal, Special Needs, and CLASS Score Rate differentials, etc.)
Attention VPK Providers:
The Division of Early Learning (DEL) has uploaded the application and affidavit for additional compensation for VPK providers into the Provider Portal.
Attached is the VPK $15/hr Wage Incentive Chart provided by DEL.
Again, for those VPK providers who choose to participate in the incentive program, your FY22-23 School-Year Differential Payment Rate is $631.80 per child in Broward County for the year ($1.17 per hour).
[$618.00 State Base + Broward Cost Adjustment (X CDC) = $631.80]
The Wage Incentive Program are for Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) providers who elect to raise the pay rate of their VPK employees to a minimum of $15/hr for all time worked on the VPK program.
