An Act concerning the provision of nursing services to nonpublic school pupils and amending P.L.1991, c.226.
Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:
1. Section 6 of P.L.1991, c.226 (C.18A:40-28) is amended to read as follows:
6. A board of education may join with other boards of education or contract with any public or private agency approved by the commissioner for the provision of nursing services required or permitted under sections 3 and 4 of this act. Prior to any change in the provision of these services, the board shall provide timely and meaningful consultation with appropriate nonpublic school representatives, including parents.
(cf: P.L.1991, c.226, s.6)
2. This act shall take effect immediately.
Under current law, each board of education of a district in which a nonpublic school is located must provide nursing services for pupils who are enrolled full-time in the nonpublic school. This bill provides that prior to any change in the provision of nursing services for students attending nonpublic schools, a board of education must provide timely and meaningful consultation with appropriate nonpublic school representatives, including parents.
