Policy 5532 – Immunizations

Students admitted to schools in the District shall be required to have all immunizations as required by state law. Except as otherwise provided, immunizations shall be required for measles, rubella, mumps, diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), tetanus, hepatitis B, polio, and varicella (chicken pox). A history of chicken pox disease is also acceptable.

A student may be waived from the immunization requirement when the student, if an adult, or the student’s parent, guardian or legal custodian submits a written statement objecting to the immunization for reasons of health, religion or personal conviction.

The building principal/designee shall be responsible for notifying the student, parent, guardian or legal custodian of the immunization requirements and shall inform such persons in writing of their right to an immunization waiver. In addition, the building principal/designee shall be responsible for maintaining complete and up-to-date immunization records for each student attending school in the District.

An immunization plan shall be developed annually to encourage compliance with state immunization requirements. This plan shall be developed in cooperation with the public health department.
