VISION AND HEARING SCREENINGS  image of eye chart and ear for screeing


Vision and hearing screenings for students are done according to California Education Law.  Students in selected grades are screened annually for distance and near vision acuity, hyperopia and hearing. Grades that are screened for both hearing and vision are:  Kinder, 2nd, 5th, and 8th. TK and Kinder students are also screened for color perception. Grade 10 students are screened for hearing only. 

 The school nurse will notify parents if any concerns are noted.  Private screening in lieu of screening by the school nurse is acceptable.  Results should be documented by the student’s MD and presented to the school office for documentation in the student’s health file. Parental written refusal of school screening should be submitted to the school office prior to the date of screening.
