New (or not so new) TB Testing Rules!   

On September 15, 2014, the Governor of California signed into law new TB testing rules for schools. Assembly Bill 1667 regulates staff and volunteer testing at schools for tuberculosis. Council PTA has been working with SDUSD to update the current district rules to comply with the "new" state law. 

Starting now the first step in becoming a school volunteer is to process an Adult Tuberculosis (TB) Risk Assessment Questionnaire. The SDUSD Nursing Department has put into place plans how school nursing staff will facilitate this questionnaire for volunteers. If you can answer "yes" to all the questions, then you won't need a trip to the doctor's office to get a TB test.
