The Ohio Department of Health sets the requirements for what grades are routinely screened each year; what equipment is acceptable to use; what specific hearing and vision tests are needed to perform screenings; and the referral criteria. Schools providing medical nursing services are required to screen school-aged students for hearing and vision.
- All students in grades K, 1, 3, 5 are required to be screened by Oct. 31st.
- Students new to the building in grades 2, 4 who have no prior screening information on file are also required to be screened by Oct. 31st.
Height, Weight & BMI (Body Mass Index) Screenings are conducted yearly.
- All students in grade K-5 are weighed and measured.
