The district will adhere strictly in policies and procedures to the Oregon Revised Statutes and the Oregon Administrative Rules as they relate to a student infected with HIV or HBV or diagnosed with AIDS.

The district recognizes a parent (student) has no obligation to inform the district of an HIV, HBV or AIDS condition, and that the student has a right to attend school. If the district is informed of such a student, written guidelines shall be requested of the parent (student).  These guidelines shall include who may have the information, who will give the information, how the information will be given and where and when the information will be given.

When informed of the infection, and with written permission from the parent (student), the district will develop procedures for formulating an evaluation team.  The team shall address the nature, duration and severity of risk as well as any modification of activities.  The team shall continue to monitor the student’s condition.

Notification of alternative educational programs shall be made to the parent or eligible student if an HIV, HBV or AIDS student withdraws from school.

The district shall also develop procedures for rumor control, infection control, student accommodations and public relations/media.
