School Health Rules

This page was created to provide information on the changes to the School Administrative Rules of Montana. ARM 37.111.801, addresses matters of health in Montana schools. Adoptions to the rules were filed with the Montana Secretary of State on January 7, 2020 and posted to in the Administrative Register on January 17, 2020.

Prior to these revisions, the school rules were last updated 1986. The administrative rules are designed to protect the health and safety of Montana students. The Department of Public Health and Human Services is coordinating with DEQ, OPI, education advocates, and other stakeholders to provide support and guidance to schools working towards compliance.
