Administrative Regulation 401.41A
Confidentiality is guaranteed! We cannot under any circumstances ask or confront staff as to whether or not they have the HIV virus or AIDS.
Because the infections are so devastating it is likely the district will not know and/or be informed of the disease. Because of this fact, it is of the utmost importance that each building be sure all staff are in-serviced in “Universal Precautions” procedures and that they be instructed to follow those precautions. An instructional video entitled “Universal Precautions” is available in the district personnel office.
In the case a school/building is notified that a staff member is infected with the HIV virus or has AIDS, the school district cannot divulge this information unless written permission is given by the staff member. Upon permission the building administration should inservice staff and stress “Universal Precautions”. The Superintendent’s Office should be notified and Board Policy # 401.41 should be put into practice.
