5.15 - Screenings
Health screenings are conducted annually according to the following schedule:
Students may be screened upon referral.
Preschool children; Grades K, 2, and 8; all special education students; all new students; and all teacher referrals. Vision screening is recommended in grades 4, 6, 10, and 12. Students wearing glasses will not be screened but are expected to see the eye doctor of their choice at least every two years or as directed by their eye doctor. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been performed.
Preschool children; Grades K, 1, 2, 3; all special education students; all new students; and all teacher referrals. Hearing screening is recommended in grades 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12.
