Vision and Hearing

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

    • special education students
    • transfer students
    • foster students 

    The screening process is ongoing throughout the school year and is administered by a certified vision and hearing technician.  Vision screening is not a substitute for regular professional examinations by an eye doctor.  Your student is not required to undergo this vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a form indicating that an examination has been administered within the previous 12 months.  A copy of the evaluation is required to be on file at the school.  This notice is not permission to test and is not required to be returned.
