Requirement for Physicals

Health Appraisals
Education Law (Section 903) and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education require physical examinations of children when they:

  • Enter a school district for the first time

  • Are in grades PreK or K, 2, 4, 7 and 10

  • Participate in interscholastic sports

  • Need working papers

  • Are referred to the Committee on Special Education

  • Require an appraisal deemed necessary by school authorities to determine an appropriate educational program for the individual.

If a report of a child's examination is submitted from a primary health care provider, it must be signed by a physician, a nurse practitioner or physician's assistant working in collaboration with the physician.

 

Submitted reports of examinations must describe the condition of the student when the examination was given and must state whether such student is in a fit condition of bodily health to permit his/her attendance.

 

No student who is new to the district will be allowed to participate in physical education classes until a health appraisal is completed and the results of the appraisal are filed in the student's health folder.

 

The physical appraisal must be no more than 12 months prior to the commencement of the school year in which the examination is required.

 

Students must have a physical prior to participation in interscholastic sports. Physicals may be completed 12 months prior to the first day of practice for the season in which the student is participating. An Interval Sports Health History must be completed by the parents of the student-athlete prior to each sports season. In addition, the parent must complete and sign the Athletic Consent Form each season in which their child participates in interscholastic sports.
