Dear County Offices of Education and District Superintendents, Charter School Administrators, and Principals:

Guidelines and Procedures for
Meeting the Specialized Physical Health Care Needs of Pupils

Recently, a number of interested individuals contacted the California Department of Education (CDE) regarding Guidelines and Procedures for Meeting the Specialized Physical Health Care Needs of Pupils (Green Book).

The Green Book is out of print and out of date. The Green Book does not reflect CDE policy or procedure, and contains information that should not be provided except through certified health professionals. Should individuals require information regarding medical treatment, they should contact the appropriate medical professional for advice and direction.

If you have further questions regarding this subject, please contact the Procedural Safeguards and Referral Services Unit at 800-926-0648.

Sincerely,

Original signed by Mary Hudler. Hard copy of the signed document is available by contacting the Special Education Division's Director's Office at 916-445-4602.

Mary Hudler, Director
Special Education Division
