 8        Sec. 27-8.1.  Health examinations and immunizations.
 9        (1)  In  compliance  with rules and regulations which the

23        A tuberculosis skin test screening shall be included as a
24    required part of each health examination included under  this
25    Section  if  the  child  resides in an area designated by the

                            -2-                LRB9111851DHgc
 1        (2)  The  Department  of  Public  Health shall promulgate
 2    rules  and  regulations  specifying  the   examinations   and
 3    procedures  that  constitute  a  health  examination  and may
 4    recommend by rule that  certain  additional  examinations  be
 5    performed.    The  rules and regulations of the Department of
 6    Public Health shall specify that  a  tuberculosis  skin  test
 7    screening shall be included as a required part of each health
 8    examination  included under this Section if the child resides
 9    in an area designated by the Department of Public  Health  as
10    having a high incidence of tuberculosis.
11        Physicians  licensed  to  practice medicine in all of its
12    branches shall be responsible  for  the  performance  of  the
13    health  examinations,  other  than  dental  examinations  and
14    vision and hearing screening, and shall sign all report forms
15    required  by  subsection  (4) of this Section that pertain to
16    those portions  of  the  health  examination  for  which  the
17    physician  is  responsible.    The physician may delegate the
18    performance of the health examination and the signing of  the
19    required  forms  to  his or her assigned physician assistant.
20    If  a  registered  nurse  performs  any  part  of  a   health
21    examination,  then  a physician licensed to practice medicine
22    in all of its branches must  review  and  sign  all  required
23    report  forms.   Licensed  dentists  shall perform all dental
24    examinations and shall sign  all  report  forms  required  by
25    subsection  (4)  of  this  Section that pertain to the dental
26    examinations.  Physicians licensed to  practice  medicine  in
27    all its branches, or licensed optometrists, shall perform all
28    vision  exams  required  by school authorities and shall sign
29    all report forms required by subsection (4) of  this  Section
30    that   pertain  to  the  vision  exam.   Vision  and  hearing
31    screening tests, which shall not be  considered  examinations
32    as  that  term is used in this Section, shall be conducted in
33    accordance with rules and regulations of  the  Department  of
34    Public  Health,  and  by  individuals  whom the Department of
                            -3-                LRB9111851DHgc
 1    Public Health has certified.
 2        (3)  Every child shall, at or about the same time  as  he
 3    or  she  receives a health examination required by subsection
 4    (1) of this Section, present to the  local  school  proof  of
 5    having   received   such  immunizations  against  preventable
 6    communicable diseases as  the  Department  of  Public  Health
 7    shall  require  by rules and regulations promulgated pursuant
 8    to this Section and the Communicable Disease Prevention Act.
 9        (4)  The individuals conducting  the  health  examination
10    shall  record  the  fact of having conducted the examination,
11    and such additional information as required, on uniform forms
12    which the Department of Public Health and the State Board  of
13    Education  shall  prescribe  for statewide use.  The examiner
14    shall summarize on the report form any condition that  he  or
15    she  suspects  indicates  a  need  for special services.  The
16    individuals  confirming  the   administration   of   required
17    immunizations  shall record as indicated on the form that the
18    immunizations were administered.
19        (5)  If a child does  not  submit  proof  of  having  had
20    either   the   health  examination  or  the  immunization  as
21    required, then the child shall be  examined  or  receive  the
22    immunization,  as  the  case  may  be,  and  present proof by
23    October 15 of the current school year, or by an earlier  date
24    of  the current school year established by a school district.
25    To establish a date before October 15 of the  current  school
26    year  for the health examination or immunization as required,
27    a school district must give notice  of  the  requirements  of
28    this  Section  60 days prior to the earlier established date.
29    If  for  medical  reasons  one  or  more  of   the   required
30    immunizations  must  be given after October 15 of the current
31    school year, or after an  earlier  established  date  of  the
32    current school year, then the child shall present, by October
33    15,  or  by  the earlier established date, a schedule for the
34    administration of the immunizations and a  statement  of  the
                            -4-                LRB9111851DHgc
 1    medical  reasons causing the delay, both the schedule and the
 2    statement being issued by the physician, registered nurse, or
 3    local  health  department  that  will  be   responsible   for
 4    administration of the remaining required immunizations.  If a
 5    child  does  not  comply  by  October  15,  or by the earlier
 6    established  date  of  the  current  school  year,  with  the
 7    requirements  of  this  subsection,  then  the  local  school
 8    authority shall exclude that child  from  school  until  such
 9    time  as  the  child  presents proof of having had the health
10    examination as required and presents proof of having received
11    those required immunizations which are medically possible  to
12    receive  immediately.  During a child's exclusion from school
13    for noncompliance with this subsection, the  child's  parents
14    or legal guardian shall be considered in violation of Section
15    26-1 and subject to any penalty imposed by Section 26-10.
16        (6)  Every  school  shall  report  to  the State Board of
17    Education by November 15, in the  manner  which  that  agency
18    shall  require,  the number of children who have received the
19    necessary  immunizations  and  the  health   examination   as
20    required,  indicating,  of  those  who  have not received the
21    immunizations and examination  as  required,  the  number  of
22    children   who   are   exempt  from  health  examination  and
23    immunization requirements on religious or medical grounds  as
24    provided  in subsection (8).  This reported information shall
25    be provided to the Department of Public Health by  the  State
26    Board of Education.
27        (7)  Upon  determining  that the number of pupils who are
28    required to be in compliance  with  subsection  (5)  of  this
29    Section  is below 90% of the number of pupils enrolled in the
30    school district, 10% of each State aid payment made  pursuant
31    to Section 18-8 to the school district for such year shall be
32    withheld  by  the regional superintendent until the number of
33    students in compliance with subsection (5) is the  applicable
34    specified percentage or higher.
                            -5-                LRB9111851DHgc
 1        (8)  Parents  or  legal  guardians  who  object to health
 2    examinations or any part thereof,  or  to  immunizations,  on
 3    religious  grounds  shall  not  be  required  to submit their
 4    children or wards to the  examinations  or  immunizations  to
 5    which  they  so  object  if  such  parents or legal guardians
 6    present to the appropriate local school  authority  a  signed
 7    statement   of  objection,  detailing  the  grounds  for  the
 8    objection.  If the physical condition of the  child  is  such
 9    that  any  one or more of the immunizing agents should not be
10    administered, the examining  physician  responsible  for  the
11    performance of the health examination shall endorse that fact
12    upon the health examination form.  Exempting a child from the
13    health   examination   does   not   exempt   the  child  from
14    participation in the program of physical  education  training
15    provided in Sections 27-5 through 27-7 of this Code.
16        (9)  For  the purposes of this Section, "nursery schools"
17    means those nursery schools  operated  by  elementary  school
18    systems  or  secondary  level school units or institutions of
19    higher learning.
