I. 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 inimical to the welfare of pupils or other employees. The cost of such examination will be borne by the district.

III. Responsibility
The Superintendent and/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 results.
