The Connecticut state-mandated Cumulative Health Record (CHR-1) serves as the official student health record within Connecticut schools and as such is recognized as a legal document. It provides a systematic way to organize the collection of health information and document health services provided to an individual student.

Cumulative health records shall be maintained for all students, listing all screening results, immunizations and pertinent information, i.e., allergies, special needs, medical history, etc.

Cumulative health records shall be maintained in designated locked file cabinets located in the health room.

Documentation on the cumulative health record is the responsibility of the school health personnel.
