The District may provide or request parents to provide:

  B. Dental examinations


  C. Tests for communicable or infectious disease


  D. Vision and/or audiometric/hearing screening


  E. Scoliosis screening


  F. Body Mass Index (BMI), height, weight screening


If the District chooses to provide nonemergency physical exams or screenings, the Board shall directly notify the parents of students of the specific or approximate dates during the school year when any non-emergency, invasive physical examination or screening is scheduled or expected to be scheduled for students if examination or screening is:

  A. required as a condition of attendance.


  B. administered by the school and scheduled by the school in advance.


  C. 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.

The Superintendent shall develop and update as needed administrative procedures to implement this policy.

Unless the physical examination or screening is permitted or required by an applicable State law, parents may refuse to allow the Board to administer a nonemergency, invasive physical examination or screening upon written notification to the Board within 14 days after receipt of the Board's annual public notice.
