Public School Entry Survey Instructions

ADPH's plan is to transition away from the electronic survey on the Website and strictly use ImmPRINT for the annual survey, but in order to do this all schools will have to assign all students, including exemptions, and enter all doses not in ImmPRINT. Until then, please follow the instructions listed below.

  • All schools must complete the demographics page 1 in the electronic survey above.
  • For those schools who have assigned all students, exemptions, and entered all doses not in ImmPRINT, you only need to complete the demographic page and click to 3rd page to "Submit".
  • For those schools who have not assigned all students, exemptions, and entered all doses are not in ImmPRINT, complete the demographic page 2, and "Submit" on page 3.
  • At the July 2016 ALSDE Mega Conference, it was said "if you are entering doses into ImmPRINT, you no longer have to enter them in INOW."
