Health Screenings

The school system’s health team schedules these screenings of students within 60 administrative days of the beginning of school and notifies parents in writing of any concerns so that they may follow up with their health-care providers:

  • vision and hearing screening for kindergarten and grades 3, 7 and 10
  • scoliosis screening for individual students, if requested by parent

Parents of students with an individualized education program or Section 504 plan for vision or hearing disabilities or those who object to screening on religious grounds may opt out of screening for their student in these grades by contacting the school nurse at their child’s school before Sept. 2, 2022.

Vision screening is completed using either an eye chart or a hand-held portable device called a photoscreener. In the 2022-23 school year, Chesterfield County Public Schools is partnering with Conexus to provide vision screenings for students in kindergarten, third grade, seventh grade and 10th grade. Your child is not required to participate in this free program. If you do not want your child to receive this free service, contact your school nurse to opt out.
