The Children’s Hearing and Vision Program has extended the deadline to complete the requirement for kindergarten and/or first grade hearing and vision screenings from November 1st to January 30th.
During the 2020-2021 school year, preschool/K-12 schools must ensure to comply with local Public Health Alert System guidelines, local advisories, and local school districts to determine when to initiate or resume hearing and/or vision screenings. View the supplemental guidance below regarding hearing and/or vision screenings in your school.
If a preschool and/or K-12 school have trouble conducting hearing and/or vision screenings according to this guidance, the school must notify ODH by utilizing the appropriate 2020-2021 COVID-19 Readiness Survey.
If the school is operating in a 100% VIRTUAL or HYBRID instruction model, notify ODH of hearing and/or vision screening barriers using link https://odhredcap.odh.ohio.gov/surveys/?s=4N7ARJF7CM
