Florida Department of Health in Lake County to Offer Preventive Health Screenings in Private and Charter Schools  

The Florida Department of Health in Lake County would like to welcome students back to school, and is offering preventive school-based screenings (vision, hearing, scoliosis and growth & development) for students attending private and charter schools in Lake County.  

These preventive school-based screenings are provided to public and participating private and charter school children in grades kindergarten through twelfth in each of Florida’s 67 school districts.  The results of these screenings are not a diagnosis, but rather a tool you may take to your child’s physician to follow up on any screening results.  The goal of school health services is to ensure that students are healthy, in school, and ready to learn.
