Physical Exams or Screenings
No school official or staff member shall subject a student to a non-emergency, invasive physical examination, or screening as a condition of school attendance. 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 or vision screening.
This does not apply to any physical examination or screening that:
- Is permitted or required by an applicable State law, including physical examinations or screenings that are permitted without parental notification;
- Is administered to a student in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C. §1400 et seq.);
- Is administered pursuant to the District’s extracurricular drug and alcohol testing program;
- Is otherwise authorized by Board policy.
