Aiken County School Nurses perform basic vision, hearing, dental and blood pressure screenings throughout the school year according to recommendations issued by the South Carolina Department of Health. The purpose of the screenings is to promote health and identify potential problems that may affect classroom learning. Schools should accept documentation of screening results from a licensed practitioner in lieu of the school-based screening. Parents/guardians may request that their child not be screened at school. Such requests should be submitted in writing and maintained on file.
