Vision & Hearing Screening

School Screening

School health personnel perform vision and hearing screening of students. The parents of a child may request a screening at any time. Vision screening will be done, as mandated, for preschool, kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 8th grade students; special education students; teacher referrals; and new students. Hearing screening will be done, as mandated, for preschool, kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade students; special education students; teacher referrals; and new students.

Screenings & Required Exams

Vision and hearing screenings are not substitutes for a complete eye and ear examination by an appropriate doctor. Your child will not be required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months and that an evaluation is on file at the school.

Your child will not be required to undergo this hearing screening if an audiologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months and that evaluation is on file at the school. This notice is not a permission to test and is not required to be returned.

Vision and hearing screening is not an option. If a vision or hearing examination report is not on file at the school for your child, your child in the mandated age, grade, or group will be screened.
