Student Health Recordss
Health History and Appraisal (A-45)
The Health History and Appraisal form (A-45) was revised in August 2016 to add Interferon-Gamma Release Assay (IGRA) to the "TB Screening" section, as recommended by the New Jersey Department of Health. The A-45 was last revised in June 2014 to add concussion and traumatic brain injury (school nurses are required to document if a student has a diagnosed concussion/TBI) and in June 2012 to accommodate school districts that have chosen to measure students' Body Mass Index (BMI). It is at the discretion of the school nurse to enter BMI on the form or leave it blank, since it is currently not a required health screening in New Jersey.
