Summary

This document consists of the guidelines of the National Education Association, for use in school districts, colleges, and universities, and of a statement concerning them. The guidelines address such issues as (1) whether students or school employees who have or could transmit Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) should be permitted to remain in the school setting, (2) whether a school employer should be able to require a student or school employee to be tested for AIDS; (3) whether a school employee should be required to teach or provide other personal contact services to an AIDS infected student and (4) whether information about the condition of an AIDS infected student or school employee should be made available to others. The guidelines are consistent with recommendations made by the Federal Center for Disease Control. Specifically, the guidelines do not advocate the categorical admission or exclusion of AIDS infected students, but provide rather for this determination to be made on a case-by-case basis by a team consisting of public health personnel, the student's physician and parents, and appropriate school personnel. A similar case-by-case determination is recommended with regard to the continued employment of school employees who have or could transmit AIDS. The guidelines also seek to protect the legitimate privacy rights of students and school employees. The guidelines require that excluded students be afforded an adequate alternative education. (DB)
