Health Screening Programs

The California Education Code requires periodic health screenings by grade level of students to detect health impairments that can impede learning and quality of life. Parents who do not want their student to participate can contact their school nurse. Students can be screened at any grade level for suspected vision/hearing problems if referred to the school nurse by parents or teachers.

  • Vision Screening: Kindergarten, or upon the first enrollment in a California elementary school, and 2nd, 5th and 8th grade students. If eye glasses are needed for your student and your family cannot afford them, please contact your school nurse.
  • Hearing Screening: Kindergarten, 2nd, 5th, 8th and 10th grade students.
  • Scoliosis: 7th grade girls and 8th grade boys.
