The InterMountain Education Service District (IMESD) will provide free hearing screenings to public elementary school students at area schools this fall.
Hearing screenings are conducted annually by the IMESD’s Audiology Department for public school students in Morrow, Umatilla and Union counties. The program is cooperatively funded by the IMESD’s 18 component school districts.
Students to be screened include kindergarten, first and third grade students, new students to a district and parent/teacher/principal referrals of students in other grades. Children who fail the initial screening will be re-screened within a three-week period.
Screenings began September 3 and continue through the middle of November.
Parents who DO NOT want their child to be screened should notify their child’s school as soon as possible.
If you have questions about the hearing screening program, please contact your child’s school.
