State Required Health Screens
Texas law requires all students in Pre-Kindergarten classes 4 years of age or older, and all kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade students to be vision and hearing screened every year.
State law also requires spinal screenings for female students in grades 5 and 7 and male students in grade 8. Middle School spinal screenings will be conducted during Athletics, P.E. and Dance classes in the fall semester.
If a student fails a screening, they will be re-screened within 4 weeks. If they continue to fail, the child will be given a referral notice for the parent recommending they see a physician.
All screenings are completed throughout the school year, starting about 2 weeks into the school year.
