COVID-19 Medical Consent and Certification for Distance Learning in the 2021-2022 School Year(reminder)
The COVID-19 Medical Consent and Certification for Distance Learning documents a student’s physical or mental health condition that requires the student to participate in distance learning due to COVID-19. This medical certification must be completed by the parent/guardian AND licensed physician or nurse practitioner and is required for any student in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade registering for distance learning for the 2021-22 school year due to COVID-19. This is the only documentation that may be accepted to approve a student for distance learning due to COVID-19. Note, this form should not be used for students registering for Home and Hospital Instruction Programs unrelated to COVID-19; such students should adhere to the local education agency’s (LEA’s) or school’s procedures for Home and Hospital Instruction.
On June 30, OSSE released updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for LEAs and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Families regarding the medical certification form and distance learning eligibility. Translated versions of the medical certification form and the family-facing FAQs can be found here.
