Brockton Public Schools

School Committee Policy


Through its overall safety program and various policies pertaining to school personnel, the Committee will seek to assure the safety of employees during their working hours and assist them in the maintenance of good health.

Prior to employment in the school system, all employees will submit evidence of freedom from tuberculosis, as specified by state law. Such employees must also file with the Superintendent's office a record of having passed a physical examination taken not more than 90 days prior to the date of appointment. Additional physical examinations will also be required of bus drivers and food handlers as law or state regulations require.

The Superintendent may require an employee to submit to a physical examination by a physician appointed by the school system whenever that employee's health appears to be a hazard to children or others in the school system or when a doctor's certificate is needed to verify need for sick leave.
