AN ACT CONCERNING THE USE OF PUBLIC SCHOOL HEALTH ASSESSMENT FORMS BY YOUTH CAMPS AND DAY CARE CENTERS

SUMMARY: This act allows licensed youth camps, child day care centers, and group and family day care homes to use a child's required school physical and either his or her (1) public school student health assessment form (referred to as the “blue form”) or (2) State Department of Education early childhood health assessment record form to satisfy any physical examination or health status certification they require. It requires that the physical examination be completed within a time the Office of Early Childhood (OEC) commissioner establishes.

The act also requires the OEC commissioner to adopt regulations to allow a child's school health assessment form, in addition to a physical examination, to satisfy a youth camp's health examination or certification requirement. Under prior law, the public health commissioner adopted regulations on youth camp health forms.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 1, 2014
