Children are screened in school according to the following schedule:

                        Hearing: Preschool and grades K, 2 and 4

                        Vision: Preschool and grades 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9

In addition to school screenings, FREE hearing and vision screenings are available at the Monroe County Health Department.
