  (3) change in federal or state laws or regulations that affect the parent's eligibility;

  (5) a sanctions finding against the parent participating in the Choices program;

  (6) voluntary withdrawal of a parent from the Choices program;

  (7) nonpayment of parent share of cost;

  (8) a parent's failure to report, within 10 days of occurrence, any change in the family's circumstances that would have rendered the family ineligible for subsidized child care;

  (9) a suspension of child care services pursuant to §809.51 (related to Child Care during Temporary Interruptions in Work, Education, or Training); or

  (10) five consecutive absences and the parent has failed to contact the child care provider or the child care contractor by the end of the fifth authorized day.

(c) The cost of providing services during the appeal process is subject to recovery from the parent by the Board, if the appeal decision is rendered against the parent.
