RANCHO SANTA FE (KUSI) – The Rancho Santa Fe School District has passed a resolution against California’s vaccination mandate.
School district officials are calling on Governor Newsom to reconsider or lift the mandate as a condition of personal learning.
The RSFSD board of directors said it believed the vaccination mandate was “unwise and contrary to the district’s educational, social and emotional goals for its students.”
“The governor’s vaccination mandate severely limits the control of the local school district in deciding how best to access personal education for all students, and the board recognizes that many families who do not vaccinate their children de-register their children.” , it says in the resolution. It goes on to say, “Given this likely outcome, the vaccination mandate affects a local school district’s ability to personally care for its students.”
The school board of Rancho Santa Fee passed the resolution unanimously with 4-0 votes on December 16, 2021.
According to Governor Newsom’s vaccination mandate, all California K-12 students in public and private schools must be vaccinated in order to attend personal school. Unvaccinated children have options for online, self-paced, or homeschooled children.
