Policy - 1460 Physical Examination

Last Revised on February 11, 2013

The School Board or Superintendent reserves the right to require any employee or candidate, after a conditional offer of employment, to submit to an examination in order to determine the physical and/or mental capacity to perform assigned duties.

Reports of all such examinations or evaluations shall be delivered to the Superintendent, who shall protect their confidentiality. Reports will be discussed with the employee or candidate and made a part of an employee's personal record. In the event of a report of a condition that could influence job performance, the Superintendent shall base a non-employment recommendation to the Board upon a conference with a physician and substantiation that the condition is directly correlated to defined job responsibilities, and reasonable accommodation will not allow the employee or prospective employee to adequately fulfill those responsibilities.

Employees will be notified of the results of the medical examination upon receipt. Any and all reports of such examination will be maintained in a separate confidential personnel file in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA).

The Board shall assume any uninsured fees for required examinations.
