This is a School Board led engagement on Resolution on State Board of Health Vaccine Mandate process. Staff are extremely busy setting up vaccine clinics (~48!) in the coming weeks.
Description: Seattle School Board resolution on COVID Vaccination Access, Acceptance and support for Board of Health Mandate for Students
Purpose: As significant disparities exist with respect to information, access and impact of COVID we are now, a month and a half in to the school year, seeing how those disparities impact our students in SPS. Seattle Public Schools has become the frontlines for Public Health management and, until such time as the virus is controlled with sufficient community immunity, expends precious educational resources on managing cases, quarantines and contact tracing and less time supporting students. Seattle Public Schools is considering a resolution that would ask the State Board of Health to being the evaluation process (the same process as every other vaccine mandated for school attendance).
While vaccines are the most effective way to combat the disease and keep our students and staff safe, we also know the aforementioned disparities mean the impact of a prospective mandate for students would also create additional disparities. Before we vocalize our support, we would like to hear from community members what they believe we need to know, what they need to know from us and our partners and how SPS can best use its education and partnership resources to mitigate disparities.
Prospective questions for attendees (completely open to changes with these): 1 The state department of health mandates many vaccines for school attendance, once fully approved by the FDA, how do you feel about the state Department of Health potentially including approved COVID mandates? 2 What has the impact of testing and quarantining been on your and/or your child’s school experience. 3 What would be the impact of a vaccine mandate on your family? 4 What role do trust and lack of information from trusted sources play in your feelings about vaccines for students? 5 How has COVID impacted your relationship with SPS in general?k 6 What could SPS do or collaborate with partners on that would support you and your family with respect to COVID and public and student health concerns in general?
