Health Screening

  • HEALTH SCREENING INFORMATION

    The School Board of Broward County is required by Florida Statute 402.32 and 230.2312 to conduct a health-screening program. Throughout the school year, we will be conducting vision, hearing and height/weight screenings.

    Through a cooperative agreement with the Broward County Public Health Unit, trained individuals at each school will do the screenings. If a problem is detected, you will be notified.

    Hearing screenings will take place for students in Kindergarten, 1st, and those new to Broward County Schools. Vision screenings will take place for students in Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, and those new to Broward County Schools. Height/weight screenings will take place for students in 1st and 3rd grades. If you do not want your child to participate in any of the programs, please notify the school in writing.
