5310 Policy_Health Services

The Board of Education may require students to submit to periodic health examinations to:

    A. Protect the school community from the spread of communicable disease;
    B. Determine that each student's participation in health, safety, and physical education courses meets his/her
        individual needs;
    C. Determine that the learning potential of each child is not lessened by a remediable, physical disability.

The District shall specify the need for health services which may include, but not be limited to:
    A. Student physical examinations;
    B. Athlete physical examinations;
    C. Dental examinations;
    D. Vision screening;
    E. Audiometric screening.
Any health services program should also include instruction to staff members on the observance of students for
conditions that indicate physical defect or disability.
The Board shall directly notify the parents of students, at least annually at the beginning of the school year, of the
specific or approximate dates during the school year when any non-emergency, or screening is scheduled or
expected to be scheduled for students if the examination or screening is:  (1) required as a condition of
attendance; (2) administered by the school and scheduled by the school in advance; and (3) not necessary to
protect the immediate health and safety of a specific student, or other students.
The term "invasive physical examination" means any medical examination that involves the exposure of private
body parts, or any act during such examination that includes incision, insertion, or injection into the body, but
does not include a hearing, vision, or scoliosis screening.
