The Board of Education authorizes the Superintendent of Schools to work with the School Medical Advisor in an effort to develop and implement regulations concerning pediculosis or head lice. The regulations are to include identification, treatment procedures, and notification process which will insure prompt and medically accurate action for students having pediculosis. The regulations are also to include assertive procedures which will reduce the opportunity of spreading pediculosis to other students.  No healthy child should be excluded from or miss school because of head lice.
