Communicable Disease Control

In accordance with Texas Administrative Code Title 25 Part 1 Chapter 97 rule 97.7, the school administrator shall exclude from attendance any child having or suspected of having a communicable disease designated by the Commissioner of Health (commissioner) as cause for exclusion until one of the criteria listed in subsection c) of this section is fulfilled.
