The session will include a discussion of NCSBA’s March 31, 2020, revision of Policy 4230, Communicable Diseases – Students, which includes provisions addressing the school system’s duty to report communicable disease, to maintain the confidentiality of health information, and to provide notice of exposure to infectious agents under certain circumstances.

The session will also include a general discussion of some of the health-related legal and policy issues that your board will need to consider while planning for the reopening of school in the fall, such as compliance with federal, state, and local health protocols, addressing increased absenteeism among staff and students, and preventing stigma, harassment, and/or bullying due to perceived race, national origin, or recent travel.
