• District Screenings
     
    All seventh grade students and any NEW TO THE DISTRICT 6th and 8th graders will have their vision and hearing screened in accordance with the Texas state requirements.  Students failing two screenings will receive a referral letter. Seventh grade students will also be screened for Acanthosis Nigricans (AN).  A positive AN marker is a risk factor for having high levels of insulin in the blood that can lead to insulin resistance and possibly Type 2 Diabetes. 
     
    Students in sixth grade will be screened for abnormal spinal curvature before the end of the school year. A letter will be sent out prior to screening. Students failing two spinal examinations require a referral.
