NJASA Legal Department Research Services - September 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. Part one of this Administrative Guide series reviewed the employment of school nurses, tenure issues, certification requirements, and the provision of health and related services to students. Part two continues the discussion by reviewing issues involving collective negotiations, health services policies, and school nurse plans.
In addition, the School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one case in which the Appellate Division held that a former head custodian who entered into the Pre-Trial Intervention program, following theft charges related to his employment, was not eligible for deferred retirement.
The September 2016 Special Education Bulletin reviews two cases including one in which an ALJ dismissed the petition challenging the district’s decision to place a disabled high school student on home instruction for 45 days following a disciplinary incident.
