Adults in education have spent countless hours over the past six months deciding what’s best for student learning in light of the current global pandemic, with one very important stakeholder sharing their perspective over the summer, students.
Washington, DC - Today, Executive Director Dr. Michelle Walker-Davis and Board Chair Rick Cruz released the following statement about the decision of Hanseul Kang, the DC State Superintendent of Education (OSSE), to step down in October:
All students must have up-to-date immunization certification on file with the school within the first 20 school days or they will not be allowed to attend school or school activities until the immunization certification is secured by the school. Review this page to guarantee your students are ready for school.
DC laws and regulations require that any child attending a school or daycare in DC submit a completed Universal Health Certificate and Oral Health Assessment Form annually to demonstrate that all students are receiving the health care they need.
Adult immunizations are critical to helping reduce the spread of vaccine preventable diseases to residents, visitors, and those working in the District. Adult learners ages 18 & up can access free immunizations through the adult immunization program.
