To Texas School Districts:
the 86th Legislature, HB 3884 required
the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) to create procedures for
school districts to provide information relating to bacterial meningitis to
students and parents. This requirement was previously assigned to the Texas
Education Agency (TEA). DSHS has created a website with bacterial meningitis
information aimed at students and parents.
districts should provide the information from the DSHS website on the
district website. Alternatively districts
may provide a link to the DSHS page on the district website. For school
districts that do not maintain a website, the information should be provided
in hard copy to each student. A printable version of the information is
available on the website.
