Families must submit Form A to the district of residence for each child by August 26, or within 14 days of removing the child from school, or within 14 days of moving into the district.
If a child requires special education services, the Director of Special Education at the AEA must pre-approve CPI for the child.
If filing Form A for the 1st time, attach immunization information. Proof of immunization is required of all children receiving CPI, including those enrolled in a HSAP unless the immunization exemption form is also completed for religious or medical reasons.
In 2007 Legislation was enacted Iowa General Assembly requires all children under the age of 6 to have a blood lead test. Compliance with this requirement will be verified for children enrolling in kindergarten and children under the age of 6 for whom a Competent Private Instruction report form is filed. This will be done by matching the names of these children with the Iowa Department of Health’s blood lead database.
