Health Screenings

Texas law requires the following health screenings for students in the following grades:

Vision and HearingGrades Pre-K, K, 1,3,5,7 as well as new students entering the district. Parents, students, and staff may request a screening at any time. Students who fail the screening will receive a referral notice for further evaluation. A parent/guardian can present proof of vision, hearing, and scoliosis evaluations from private sources, in lieu of this screening.

Spinal Screening - New for the 2015/16 School Year

In an attempt to align spinal screening requirements with the recommendations of American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), students in grades 5 and 8 will be screened for abnormal spinal curvature before the end of the school year. The screening requirement for students entering grades 5 or 8 may be met if the student has been screened for spinal deformities during the previous year.
