AB 2329 – Permits A Local Educational Agency To Contract With A Nonprofit Mobile Eye Examination Provider To Provide Pupil’s Eye Examinations And Eyeglasses

CATEGORY: Public Education Matters
CLIENT TYPE: Public Education
DATE: Oct 28, 2022

Existing law required the governing board of a school district to provide for adequate testing of the sight and hearing of each pupil enrolled in schools of the school district and identify the persons authorized to conduct the examination.

AB 2329 amends existing law to allow a local educational agency to enter into a memorandum of understanding with a nonprofit mobile eye examination provider to provide noninvasive eye examinations. The local education agency must provide notice to the pupil’s parent or guardian an opportunity to opt-out their child from receiving eye care services. The State Department of Education is required to develop and post on its website a sample opt-out form.

This bill supplements existing law and does not replace existing requirements. The bill further provides that participating healthcare professionals are immune from civil and criminal liability, and immune from any disciplinary action from a professional licensing board, for providing authorized services without parent or guardian consent. The bill also provides immunity to participating local educational agencies.

(AB 2329 adds Section 49455.5 to the Education Code.)
