recommended for further examination, will receive a modified vision screening exam with full
auto-refraction by a licensed optometrist. These services will be provided regardless of insurance
coverage, immigration status or ability to pay.
“As educators, it is our mission to assist in eliminating barriers that would limit or prevent our students
from achieving their greatest potential,” said Superintendent of Schools, Morcease J. Beasley. “While we focus on educating our students, we must also be aware of outside factors and create solutions that work to the children’s benefit. I am very proud of our Division of Student Support Services for their commitment to identifying programs that benefit our students and positively impact their ability to succeed,” he concluded.
The vision screenings will be available to students at the following elementary schools in the order of
listing: King, West Clayton, Church Street, Northcutt, Oliver, Edmonds, Huie, Riverdale, Harper and
Pointe South. Once eligible students (with parental consent) attending the aforementioned schools have
received services (screening, examination, and received glasses, if needed) , the district will phase in ten
additional schools until all schools are completed.
