An Act To Amend Title 16 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention.


This Act continues work started with the passage of HB 222 to ensure blood lead tests for school, child care, and early intervention programs enrollment meet standards and allow for the efficient transmission of blood lead screen data to schools, child care facilities, and early intervention service providers to provide a better opportunity to assist children with different levels of lead exposure. The Act defines the requirement for both a 12-month and a 24-month screening for children enrolled in child care facilities, public and private schools, and early intervention programs while clarifying the failure to obtain a 12-month screening does not prevent enrollment for children who provide proof of a 24-month screening. The Act also establishes requirements making blood lead level data available to school nurses and special education coordinators.
