SECTION 5
SCREENING PROGRAMS

A District must establish and implement written procedures for screening all children in the District ages 3 through 21. Screening programs are intended to efficiently collect objective information in a few critical areas to complement any existing subjective information. Suggested screening guidelines are provided as part of the model Child Find Plan in Appendix B.

Each child must receive a physical examination when the child enters school, and thereafter at regular intervals considered advisable by the District. Vision and hearing screening must also be given to each child when entering school and at intervals specified by the District. Districts are also required to complete a "Developmental Profile" on each child entering kindergarten that includes developmental information on physical well-being and motor development, language and literacy development, personal and social development, thinking and cognitive development, and the child's background. Other required screenings may be conducted in cooperation with other agencies.

Screenings of a student by a teacher or specialist to determine appropriate instructional strategies for curriculum implementation shall not be considered an evaluation for eligibility for special education and related services.
