Immunization requirements for all grades
Immunization requirements and recommendations for the school year are based on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommendations and the consensus of the Governor’s Child Health Advisory Committee Immunization Workgroup.

K.A.R. 28-1-20 defines immunizations required for any individual who attends school or early childhood programs operated by a school.

Efforts by schools have been central to the success of public health efforts in eliminating vaccine preventable diseases and protecting their students and families.
The following policy has been approved by the Clearwater Board of Education to ensure our district is compliant with state laws:

Student forms for Sports/Competitions

Students in grades 7-12 who participate in Kansas State High School Activities Association (KSHSAA) athletics, spirit or spirit competitions groups must have a physical completed each year. This form must be completed by a practicing physician or registered physician's assistant. KSHSAA Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation form

Health Assessment/School Physicals
As required by Kansas law, all students up to the age of nine must have on file a completed health assessment (physical) form. The assessment may be completed by a physician or by a nurse certified by the KSDE. Failure to comply with this policy will result in the student being excluded from school until compliance is achieved. Exemptions under this policy may be obtained by a written statement signed by one parent/guardian that the student is adherent of a religious denomination whose teachings are opposed to such assessments.  (See below in student health forms)
