Required Exams

Dental Exam Requirement

Effective January 1, 2007, an Oral Health Assessment (OHA) by a licensed California dental health professional is required for children entering public school for the first time (at kindergarten or first grade). The OHA must be completed and returned to the school by May 31, the year of entry. Assessments done 12 months before school entry also meet this requirement. Obtain the form from the school or your dental health provider. Transitional kindergarten students who submit an oral health assessment will complete this requirement. Parents or guardians may sign a waiver of this requirement found on the OHA form. There is no penalty or exclusion if this requirement is not met. The parent or guardian can call (619) 692-8808 for assistance in finding a provider for the OHA.

Health Exam Requirement

California's Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program. This requires all school-aged children to have a physical exam on record with the school. Please submit a copy of your child’s medical checkup to the school when you register for kindergarten or as soon as it is completed during the kindergarten year. The health exam meets the requirement if completed within 18 months of starting 1st grade. You must obtain this exam by 1st-grade entry to ensure your child is healthy and ready to learn. Parents or guardians needing assistance meeting this requirement may call (619) 692-8808. If a physical exam is against your personal beliefs, you must sign a CHDP waiver. Students who have not met this requirement by the appropriate date may be excluded from school attendance for up to five days.
