Vision and Hearing Screenings
Vision and Hearing screenings are mandated by Illinois on an annual basis for the following students:
- Vision – pre-school, kindergarten, 2nd, and 8th grades, along with new students to the district and special education students.
- Hearing – pre-school, kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades, along with new students to the district and special education students.
Vision and hearing screenings are performed by a certified vision and hearing technician. Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor. Your child is not 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 twelve months and that the evaluation is on file at the school. If a vision or hearing examination report form is not on file at the school for your child, your child in the mandated age/grade/group will be screened.
For additional information, please contact your child's school building office.
