Vision and Hearing
Vision and hearing screening will be done, as mandated, for freshmen during the semester in which they have physical education and for new students in the school district. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Students 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 evaluation is on file at the school.
