Health Screenings and Information

Tuberculosis requirement 

To comply with the Tuberculosis School Mandate for Santa Clara County, all children entering Kindergarten or transferring at any grade level from outside of Santa Clara County need a TB risk assessment form that is signed by a health professional licensed in the United States. To be valid, the documentation must be signed within 12 months prior to first school entrance or transfer. 

Health examination (1st grade) 

California law requires that all students complete a physical examination within 18 months before entering first grade. The health assessment form must be signed by registered health professional. 

Oral health assessment 

State law requires that students have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional by May 31 in either kindergarten or first grade, whichever is their first year in public school. Assessments completed within 12 months of a student entering school also meet this requirement. Oral health assessments are available at selected school sites through a collaboration with the Santa Clara County Dental Society. Parents/guardians may sign waivers under certain conditions.
