The Clark County Combined Health District assigns their public health staff to aid school nurses in administering vision and hearing screenings in each school in Clark County. Grades Pre-K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 9th and 11th receive vision and hearing screenings and 7th grade receives vision screening. The public health staff observes students for any vision or hearing related problems. For more information, visit our Hearing and Vision page.
The public health nurses act as a resource for school nurses by offering educational services, home services and additional screenings upon referral.
CCCHD also provides education and support to school staff regarding immunizations and reporting immunization information to the Ohio Department of Health.
