Policy 5075: School Health Services
The Board of Education recognizes that the primary responsibility for students' health and well-being rests with their parents or guardians.
Cognizant of the relationship between good health and good education, the Board supports a District-wide program of student health services to supplement those provided by family and community.
The District's medical director, administration and staff shall work together to develop such supplementary health services for all students. This program shall meet student needs as directed by New York State law and regulations. Health service programs and procedures shall be compiled and set forth in a school health manual, which shall be updated on a regular basis.
Adopted by Board of Education: January 24, 1990
