Being banned from school because of aids.
Feb 4, 1998

Does a school board have tthe right to keep a student out school just because they have aids?

Are there any restrictions in classes like labs ect. to a student who has aids.

Response from Ms. Breuer

No matter where you live, the Americans with Disabilities Act protects a student's access to school. There are no restrictions in any school district that I am aware of. The reason for this, of course, is that a student with AIDS does not pose a threat to the health of anyone else in the school.
