SB277 has been signed into law by the governor and takes effect July 1, 2016 for the 2016/2017 school year.

Full text of the new law


 

Do you have a child who will be 5 years old by September 1, 2015?

Although they are not subject to compulsory education until the school year in which they will be 6 years old before September 1st, if you do not fully vaccinate, you may want to establish your own private school for kindergarten.

If you file a Personal Belief Exemption for the 2015/16 school year, you will be grandfathered in and, in case you do for some reason put your child into school, they will not need to comply with the vaccination requirements until they are entering 7th grade.
