Medical Examination of School Personnel
All school personnel shall be required to have a pre-employment medical examination by
a licensed physician. Any person who objects to all or part of any medical examination
because of religious beliefs shall be exempt from said examination, except that no such
exemption shall be granted if state or local authorities determine that such exemption
would constitute a hazard to the health of persons exposed to the unexamined individual.

II. Additional Examinations
The Superintendent may request a medical examination for any employee if at any time
he/she has reason to believe that the employee’s physical or mental health may be
detrimental to the welfare of pupils or other employees. The cost of such examination
will be borne by the district.

III. Responsibility
The Superintendent or his/her designee is instructed to take such action as is required to
implement this policy and to supervise the necessary recordkeeping to substantiate test
