School Clearances

School districts may require a clearance letter as a condition of a student returning to school after an incident that presents as a potential danger to self, others or property. CarePlus provides assessments with a written determination that the student involved does, or does not present as a danger to himself or others. This letter is given to the guardian following completion of assessment if the student is cleared.
