N.J.S.A. 18A:40-4 – Required Physical Examination upon Enrollment N.J.A.C. 6A:16-2.2
This section specifically addresses the physical examination required for enrollment in a New Jersey public school. For all new enrollees, including those enrolling from out of state or out of the country, the pupil’s parents/guardians have 30 days to provide evi- dence of a medical examination that includes the following:
Evidence of immunizations pursuant to N.J.A.C. 8:57-4.1 through 4.24;
A medical history, including allergies, past serious illnesses, injuries, operations, medications, and current health problems;
Health screenings including height, weight, hearing, blood pressure, and vision; and,
A physical examination.
New Jersey recognizes the importance of a medical home for every child. The enrollment medical examination provides a baseline for future health and educational evaluations. However, if a student does not have a medical home, the school district shall provide the examination at the school physician’s office or other comparably equipped facility.
