1200.01 General Principles
It is the right of the infected individual, and his/her parents in the case of a student under the age of 18, to determine whether to notify the District of the infection. (3-25-14)
Students and employees who are infected with HIV shall attend the school/classroom and work in the same environment in which they would if they were not infected. They are entitled to all rights, privileges, and services accorded to other students and employees. Decisions about any changes in the educational program of a student or the work program of an employee who is infected with HIV shall be made on a case-by-case basis, relying on the best available scientific evidence and medical advice.
There shall be no discrimination in employment based on having an HIV infection or AIDS. No school employee shall be terminated, non-renewed, demoted, suspended, transferred, or subjected to adverse action based solely on the fact that he or she is infected with HIV (or is perceived to be infected). School employees who are unable to perform their duties due to an illness, such as those related to HIV, shall retain eligibility for all benefits that are provided for other school employees with long-term diseases or disabling conditions.
