Physical Examinations

girl examStudents in grades K-12 who are making their initial entry into a Florida school must present a record of a physical examination completed within the past 12 months. The exam record should be taken to the child's school upon enrollment.

Although a specific form is not required, it is recommended that Florida's Standardized School Entry Exam Form (DH 3040) be used to document completion of a physical examination.  It must be completed by a health care provider licensed to perform physical examinations. For students transferring to a Florida school, a comparable form from another state would be acceptable, if completed within 1 year.
