  • Hearing screenings are used to identify hearing loss and to make appropriate audiological, medical, and/or educational referral to maximize hearing and learning potential. Students to be screened annually are:

    • All preschoolers
    • Kindergarten through third grade, fifth, seventh, and 10th grades
    • Students new to the district
    • Students with hearing loss
    • Any student upon parent or teacher request

    Vision screenings are utilized for early identification of students with potential vision problems. Students to be screened are:

    • All preschoolers
    • Kindergarten through third grade, fifth, seventh, and 10th grades
    • Students new to the district
    • Any student upon parent or teacher request

    Other screenings that may occur at school include dental screening and height/weight screenings. Dental screenings help identify students at risk for dental problems. Height and weight screenings are used to identify students with potential growth problems. Questions about health screenings should be directed to the school nurse.
