Board Policies


Adoption Date: Oct 08, 2002
5320 - IMMUNIZATIONS

The Board requires that all students be properly immunized against whooping cough, poliomyelitis, measles, diphtheria, rubella (German measles), tetanus, mumps, and other communicable diseases designated by the State Board of Health.

The Superintendent shall require parents to furnish, no later than the first day of school after enrollment, a written statement of the child’s immunization accompanied by a physician’s certificate or other documentation. Students whose parents do not provide the required documentation by the opening day of school may be admitted to school provided the documentation is received within twenty (20) days. However, if the local health department or a physician determines that the child’s immunization schedule has been delayed due to extreme circumstances, and that the required immunizations will not be completed before this twentieth (20th) day, the parent of the student shall furnish this written statement and a time schedule, approved by a physician or the local health department, for the completion of the remainder of the immunizations. In this case, the student may attend school.

Exemptions to the immunization requirements shall be granted only for medical, religious, or other reasons allowed by the State.
