Inactive Voluntary Status
If the child care program is enrolled in PTQ, and has a PTQ rating visit that is due within the next 90 days, programs should contact the Office of Early Childhood and Out-of-School Learning to request Inactive Voluntary Status. IVS forms are posted below. For technical assistance filling out this form, please contact SPARK Learning Lab at 800-299-1627, or at PTQ@indianaspark.com. All requests will be approved by OECOSL for the maximum timeframe allowed in policy (90 Days). If additional time is needed past 90 days, programs will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
If a programs experiences a sudden temporary closure and is otherwise unable to submit the proper documentation, OECOSL will complete the IVS paperwork on the programs behalf. This will allow all PTQ levels to be maintained, and all CCDF and On My Way PreK vouchers to remain active at their current levels.
All inactive voluntary forms can be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org.
