Screenings

State Mandated Screenings

San Angelo ISD addresses state mandated screening procedures by conducting screens for vision, hearing, spinal (scoliosis and kyphosis) and Acanthosis Nigricans (AN).

Vision and Hearing Screening

  • Any student referred by a teacher, principal, parent and physician.
  • Students referred by Special Education.
  • All students in Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades.
  • All students new to the state of Texas.

If a child requires prescription eyewear or hearing aids, please be sure they have these prior to screening dates.

Spinal Screening

Spinal screening was mandated by HB 832. Students must be screened at least twice during the growth years-ages 10-14. SAISD provides spinal screening to all students in the 6th and 9th grades. If you have any questions, please contact your school nurse.

Acanthosis Nigricans (AN) serves as an indicator of risk for Type 2 diabetes and other chronic health problems. All students in the 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 7th grades are screened for acanthosis nigricans.

Parents may exclude their child from the screening by providing the school in advance with the results of the screening done by a medical doctor. Parents may also exclude their child out for religious reasons. The religious affiliation of which the student attends is required to submit a notarized letter stating this screening is against their belief.
