attention is required. Immunizations, as required by New Jersey State law, are
administered by the school nurse when physicians find it necessary for a child

= That when providing normal behavioral and learning models for
students, the protocol is to place them in the least-restrictive environment by
developing intervention strategies to meet individual needs.
