We are new to DeKalb School District 428. What documents are needed? If you are transferring to D428 from a different district (regardless of where the district is located), you must meet the minimum health requirements within 30 days of enrolling otherwise you will be excluded from school. Students entering Pre-K, Kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade need a school physical and need to meet immunization requirements. Students entering in a different grade must meet the minimum requirements for the last required grade (eg. incoming 2nd graders must meet the Kindergarten health requirements). Sutdents enrolling in an Illinois school for the first time (regardless of student's grade) need a physical completed within the past year. If a physical was completed in the previous state, it must meet the Illinois requirements to be accepted. Contact the school nurse to verify.
Unless an exemption or extension applies, the failure to comply with health examination and/or the immunization requirements above by October 15 of the current school year, will result in the student’s exclusion from school until the required health forms are presented to the District. New students who register after October 15 of the current school year shall have 30 days following registration to comply with the health examination and immunization regulations. If a medical reason prevents a student from receiving a required immunization by October 15, the student must present, by October 15, an immunization schedule and a statement of the medical reasons causing the delay. The schedule and statement of medical reasons must be signed by the physician, advanced practice nurse, physician assistant, or local health department responsible for administering the immunizations.
