Beginning Monday, January 7, 2013, through June 3, 2013, Jackson County Schools will be conducting hearing, vision, speech and language screenings for the following students:
1) All students needing re-checks fro a previous screening.
2) All students transferring to the Jackson County Schools System from an out-of-state school.
3) All students with no record of a previous screening, including transfer students for whom records have not been received within two weeks of enrollment.
4) All fourth grade students (hearing and vision).
The purpose of this screening is to identify those children who may exhibit deficiencies in speech and/or language development which may hinder their educational progress. Screenings will be conducted by school nurses and certified, licensed speech therapists.
