Consent and Confidentiality

  • The Superintendent or designee shall obtain written parent/guardian consent prior to providing services to a student, except when the student is authorized to consent to the service pursuant to Family Code 6920-6929 or other applicable laws.

    The Superintendent or designee shall maintain the confidentiality of student health records in accordance with law.

    To further encourage student access to health care services, the Superintendent or designee shall develop and implement strategies to assist in outreach and enrollment of eligible students from low- to moderate-income families in affordable, comprehensive state or federal health coverage programs and local health initiatives. Such strategies may include, but not be limited to, providing information about the Medi-Cal program on the application for free and reduced-price meals in accordance with law and providing students and parents/guardians with information about the low-cost Healthy Families insurance program.
