Mandated Health Screenings
Mandated periodic health screenings for vision, hearing, posture and growth checks are done during the school year. The School Nurse is able to provide referrals to primary care providers and other appropriate community health agencies, including mental health clinicians.
Mandated screenings include:
- Hearing, vision, height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) measurements will be done each year in grades 7 and 10
- Postural screening is done each year in grades 7, 8, and 9
- Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) is a confidential state mandated screening and early intervention for students whose patterns of substance use put them at risk for, or who already have, substance-related problems. It will be done each year in grades 7 and 9.
Parents/guardians are requested to schedule an appointment with the student’s physician if any screening abnormalities are detected.
