San Angelo ISD addresses state mandated screening procedures by conducting screens for vision, hearing, spinal (scoliosis and kyphosis) and Acanthosis Nigricans (AN).
If a child requires prescription eyewear or hearing aids, please be sure they have these prior to screening dates.
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.
