Toileting Policy for Public Preschool
ADMINISTRATIVE LETTER: 25
TO: Superintendents of Schools
As a matter of Federal and State anti-discrimination law, school systems may not refuse entrance into a public preschool (four year old program) to a child who is not toilet trained.
School administrative units must adopt sanitation and hygiene procedures for assisting with toileting that adequately protect the health and safety of children and staff and that includes procedures to communicate with parents to develop any necessary plan for toileting.
The full policy can be found online at http://www.maine.gov/education/fouryearold/toileting.html
