Mandated School Health Program

The Pennsylvania Public School Code requires certain school health services for all children of school age, regardless of the school setting. For a grid outlining all of the mandated services required by the Public School Code, click here. This page focuses on the physical examinations and health screenings (growth, hearing, scoliosis and vision). Information on dental health in schools can be found under the "Dental Health Program" link to the left. Information on school nurse issues can be found under the "Nurse Practice Issues" link to the left.

TransACT is available free-of-charge to every school entity in Pennsylvania and provides a comprehensive set of fodms and notices in a wide range of languages for both native English and limited-English speaking parents.
