Section 400 PERSONNEL
Title VACCINATION POLICY
The board of trustees recognizes its obligation to provide and maintain a workplace
that is free of known hazards. In accordance with this obligation, the board adopts
this policy to safeguard the health of district employees, students and the school
community from infectious diseases, such as COVID-19 or influenza, which may be
reduced by vaccinations. This policy will comply with all applicable laws and is based
on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health authorities,
All employees are required to receive vaccinations as determined by the Board,
unless a reasonable accommodation is approved. Employees not in compliance
with this policy and who have not requested a reasonable accommodation will be
placed on unpaid leave until their employment status is determined by the
Superintendent and Human Resources Department.
Employees will be notified by the Human Resources Department as to the type of
vaccination(s) covered by this policy and the timeframe(s) for having it/them
administered. The district will either provide onsite access to the vaccines or a list of
locations to assist employees in receiving vaccines on their own.
All employees will be paid for time taken to receive vaccinations. Employees are
encouraged to work with their supervisors to schedule appropriate time to comply
with this policy.
Before the stated deadlines to be vaccinated have expired, employees will be required
to provide either proof of vaccination or an approved reasonable accommodation to
be exempted from the requirements.
Employees in need of an exemption from this policy due to a medical reason, or
because of a sincerely held religious belief, must submit a completed request for
accommodation form to the Human Resources Department to begin the interactive
accommodation process as soon as possible after vaccination deadlines have been
announced. Accommodations will be granted where they do not cause the district
undue hardship or pose a direct threat to the health and safety of others.
Information regarding an employee’s medical status shall be treated as confidential.
No information known to the district or its employees regarding an employee’s
medical status shall be divulged, directly or indirectly, to any other individuals or
groups unless the employee gives prior consent to such disclosure or the disclosure
is required by law.
Questions regarding this policy may be directed to the Superintendent or Human
Resources Director, at (208) 578-5000.
