For dental examinations, the required form is the Illinois Department of Public Health Dental Examination Report.

 

a)         For transfer students from out of the State or out of the country, or from a federal Head Start program, a health form that is comparable to the Illinois requirements may be accepted only at the time of first entry into an Illinois school.  (A statement by a physician  or other health care provider indicating only that an examination was  conducted is not acceptable.)

c)          The strongly recommended evaluations include hemoglobin or hematocrit, urinalysis, and testing for sickle cell disease.  It is also recommended that the examiner list any medications that the child takes routinely, diet restrictions/needs, special equipment needed,  other needs, or known allergies.

 

d)         The health care provider shall summarize on the report form any condition that he/she suspects indicates a need for special services.
