Vision and Hearing Screening

  • Illinois State law requires that the following high school students be screened for vision and hearing on an annual basis:

    • special education students
    • transfer students
    • foster students 
    • teacher/parent/guardian referrals

    The screening process, administered by a certified vision and hearing technician, will begin in September and continue throughout the school year.

    Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision evaluation by an eye doctor.  Your child is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.
