Vision and Hearing
Currently in CUSD, all students in kindergarten, 2nd, 5th and 8th grade are screened by Bio-Acoustical Corporation for a vision assessment. Boys in second grade are additionally screened for color vision. These are State mandated screenings. Since vision and hearing screenings may only be done by certificated or credentialed school nurses our eight District Nurses facilitate any additional screenings, which include:
- All make-ups for mandated screenings
- Vision and hearing parent or teacher concerns.
- All initial IEP’s and Triennial IEP’s for students preschool to age 22 years old, where vision concerns arise.
- All annual IEP’s for students with vision and hearing issues, students preschool to age 22 years old.
Additionally, District Nurses refer students to community providers and offer State funded Vision Service Provider (VSP) coupons to qualifying students (no Medi-Cal or insurance).
