According to the California Department of Education
Governor Brown signed Senate Bill (SB) 277 on June 30, 2015 which changes immunization requirements for children entering child care or school. Effective January 1, 2016:
Parents or guardians of students in any school or child-care facility, whether public or private, will no longer be allowed to submit a personal beliefs exemption to a currently-required vaccine.
Students will no longer be required to have immunizations for entry if they attend:
- A home-based private school or
- An independent study program with no classroom-based instruction.
