RULE §745.8307How does Licensing make the decision to grant or deny my waiver or variance request?

We will not grant a waiver or variance if the minimum standard is required by statute. For all other waiver and variance requests, we consider the following factors when making the decision to grant or deny your request:

  (1) The risk to children if you are not meeting the standard;

  (2) The compliance history of your operation;

  (3) The monitoring plan assigned to your operation;

  (4) Any waivers or variances currently in effect;

  (5) Your regulatory status (for example, whether you are on initial status, evaluation, or probation);

  (6) Any economic factors or other constraints affecting your ability to comply; and

  (7) Any other variables identified by Licensing staff.
