Health Screening Activities

Health Screening Activities:

The School Health Consultant provides health screenings for students in the schools.  These services are provided annually upon request from the principal and are scheduled for each school.  For each health screening, if a student does not meet the necessary criteria, the School Health Consultant will send a notice to the parent(s) of the student, making a referral to the student’s provider for further evaluation.

Vision Screening: The School Health Consultant offers annual vision screening for students in grades kindergarten, 1, 3, and 5, or by special request for any other grades.

Dental Screening: The School Health Consultant offers dental screening annually to kindergarten students who do not have a Certificate of Dental Screening on file at the school, or by special request for any other students.

Hearing Screening: Area Education Agency (AEA) provides hearing screening for students in schools under their contract.  The School Health Consultant offers hearing screening in non-AEA contracted schools on an annual basis.  Students in grades kindergarten, 1, 3, 5, and 7 are screened, or by special request for any other grades.

Head Lice Screening: The School Health Consultant follows the Scott County Kids Health Committee guidelines for management of head lice.
