In accordance with New Jersey State law, all students will be offered a screening for height, weight and blood pressure unless documentation of a physical examination has been submitted for the student's current grade. In addition to height, weight and blood pressure, the following screenings will be offered dependent on the student's grade:
- Grade 9 - Scoliosis
- Grade 10 - Vision
- Grade 11 - Scoliosis and hearing
To review the law directly, please visit NJ Administrative Code. Refer to Subchapter 2, 6A:16-2.2.
If your student receives an annual well-child physical examination and you feel it is not necessary for Nursing Services to screen your student as noted above, please submit documentation stating such.
