CVSD School Board Statement About Following Immunization Criteria Process

At the regular CVSD Board of Directors meeting on Monday, October 25, 2021, the board of directors unanimously voted to support the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA) position that strongly supports the current process for determining what vaccinations are required for school children in state law WAC 246-105-030, rather than a political mandate process.

The CVSD School Board is not advocating to make the COVID-19 vaccine a requirement for school children and has no plans to make it a requirement through CVSD School Board action. The Board joins WSSDA in advocating that vaccine requirements for school children need to go through the rigorous long-established process to be added to WAC 246-105-030. The School Board does not support a political mandate of the COVID-19 vaccine for school children.
