Frequently Asked Questions

If you did not find your answer here or if you are experiencing problems with the system, contact us at 



Senate Bill (SB) 277

Effective January 1, 2016, parents or guardians of students in any school or child-care facility, whether public or private, will no longer be allowed to submit a personal beliefs exemption to a currently-required vaccine.


Students will no longer be required to have immunizations for entry if they attend:

  • A home-based private school or
  • An independent study program with no classroom-based instruction.

However, parents or guardians must continue to provide immunization records for these students to their schools, and schools must continue to maintain and report records of immunizations that have been received for these students. 


Students who have an individualized education program (IEP) should continue to receive all necessary services identified in their IEP regardless of their vaccination status.

7th Grade Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Immunization Requirement


California Law AB 354 requires all incoming 7th-grade students to show proof of Tdap (pertussis or whooping cough) immunization before starting school.


Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can help protect students, schools and communities.


If you have other children 10 years of age of older, you may also wish to have them immunized in anticipation of their future 7th grade year. Adults are also advised to get a pertussis booster if they haven’t already, to protect themselves, their families and their students.


If you have any questions, please speak to our district student services staff at (626) 939-4600 ext. 4682 and they will be happy to assist you.
