The school health staff will perform the following mandated screenings. If you do not wish the school health staff to perform the screenings, you may substitute a professional examination by a health care provider of your choice.
The results of these screenings may indicate that your child may need diagnostic evaluation beyond the school capabilities. Referrals to physicians are made as needed.
Vision and Hearing Screening
These screenings are required for students in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th grades, as well as all students new to Texas schools.
Scoliosis (spinal) Screening
In order to identify unnatural curvatures of the spine, this screening is required for all students in 6th and 9th grades.
