Angela,

Did SUHSD provide per school student vaccination rates?

Was there any information on how student vaccination information was collected?

Did students/families just check a “I have been vaccinated” box, or was proof/record of vaccination required?

Resident, I'd also asked the district about this.

The district got the student vaccination information from the California Dept of Public Health's California Immunization Registry (cairweb.org) website.

I was glad to see at least 83% of students are fully vaccinated and almost 86% are at least partially vaccinated. That's pretty close to Sequoia Union High School District staff who are just over 87% vaccinated.

Here are the slides from the Board meeting:
