NJASA Legal Department Research Services - August 2016
School nurses provide vital and essential services to school students on a daily basis. Every board of education is required to employ at least one school nurse, but boards may also employ non-certified nurses to provide nursing services. This Administrative Guide series discusses the employment of school nurses, tenure issues, certification requirements, and the provision of health and related services to students.
In addition, the School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one new case in which the Commissioner upheld the decision in which an ALJ determined that being a vegetarian is a “distinguishing characteristic” within the meaning of HIB.
The August 2016 Impact on Negotiations reviews four cases including one in which PERC determined that a local association’s proposal to continue a health benefits provision in a contract, which set a contribution level of 1.5% of base salary in a successor agreement, was preempted by N.J.S.A 18A:16-7.2.
