Vision and Hearing Screenings
Students will be screened to identify potential vision or hearing concerns. The screenings are not intended to replace professional examinations. Students in grades 1 and 3 will have a vision and hearing screening. Students in 7th grade will only have a vision screening. Vision and hearing screenings will also be performed on elementary and middle school students new to Rochester Public Schools. If you wish your child to be excluded from either or both of these screenings, please notify your student’s health office at the beginning of every school year. Vision and/or hearing screenings may also be performed for student, parent or teacher concern. Parents will be notified, through a referral process, only if the student does not pass either screening.
