Action ButtonThe bill to amend health assessments, which includes the invasive health assessment form currently used for kindergarten entry, is going to be heard by the Senate Health committee on May 12th.


The meeting will take place on May 12:

HB 13 Amend School Health Assessment Requirement
HB 195 Allow Substitution of Biosimilars
HB 437 Create Permit Exemptions/Home Renal Products

See the history and read the bill text for HB 13.

HB 13 hinges on the ‘health assessment form‘, which goes far beyond what the law requires and contains a signature panel that, in essence, removes the parent from conversations between their child’s health care provider and NC Dept. of Public Instruction and NC DHHS.

Your child’s data is not confidential. This form is part of the child’s permanent record. The data collected in it is already being used in some districts to track children.
