Acanthosis Nigricans Screening
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.
