COVID-19 Vaccination Disclosure

Limestone Learning Foundation

The Government of Ontario announced on August 17, 2021 that publicly-funded school boards must implement a vaccination disclosure policy for all school board employees  and other individuals frequently in these settings who may have direct contact with students and/or staff, for the 2021-2022 school year.

This policy covers the following groups of individuals: all school board employees/staff, including daily and long-term occasional teachers and casual education workers, school board trustees, student transportation drivers, students on educational placement, including professional services students on a placement/work-integrated learning visit (e.g., teacher candidate practicums, nurse,
psychologist, behavioural therapist, speech-language pathologist, etc.), volunteers, those who provide professional services to students at school and visitors, including third-party contractors.

The objectives of this policy are to:

  • Support safer schools for Ontario’s students and staff;
  • Set out a provincially consistent approach to COVID-19 immunization disclosure policies in schools;
  • Optimize COVID-19 vaccination rates in schools;
  • Ensure that individuals have access to reliable information to support informed decisions about COVID-19 vaccination; and
  • Ensure that individuals who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are being routinely tested for COVID-19.

Regular rapid antigen testing requirements will be in place for staff who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Individuals who do not intend to be vaccinated, without a documented medical reason, will be required to participate in an educational session about the benefits of COVID-19 vaccination.

The policy also requires that school boards are expected to publicly post the aggregated, depersonalized statistical information and continue doing so on a monthly basis.
