VISION AND HEARING SCREENING
Queen Bee District 16 students participate in vision and hearing screening annually, as mandated. Vision screening is not, however, a substitute for a complete eye and vision examination by an eye doctor. Those students whose optometrist or opthalmologist has completed and signed a report indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous twelve months are not required to undergo the vision screening at school. Required grades for vision screening are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, second eight, special education, and transfer students. Required grades for hearing screening are pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, first, second, third, special education, and transfer students. Questions regarding vision and hearing screening may be directed to the school nurse.
