The Denison Community School District believes good health is important to job performance. School bus drivers will present evidence of good health upon initial hire and every other year in the form of a physical examination report, unless otherwise required by law or medical opinion.
The cost of bus driver renewal physicals will be paid by the school district. The school district will provide the standard examination form to be completed by a certified medical examiner for bus drivers.
Employees whose physical or mental health, in the judgment of the administration, may be in doubt will submit to additional examinations to the extent job-related and consistent with business necessity, when requested to do so, at the expense of the school district.
The district will comply with occupational safety and health requirements as applicable to its employees in accordance with law.
