Senate Bill 2700, which was passed during the 2006 Regular Legislative Session, requires local school districts and agricultural high schools to provide information about meningococcal disease and the effectiveness of vaccinations. The law states that a district may establish a link on its Web site to the State Department of Health's Web site to be in compliance.
