Committee members aend training at the Bulloch County Health Department where they are briefed on procedures and limitations of testing, as well as usage of eye charts and audiometer.
Chairman contacts school administrators and nurses to schedule testing times and obtain population of the 3rd and 5th grade.
Chairman schedules 4 Commiee members per day for the larger schools and 2 Commiee members per day for the smaller schools.The number of days spent at each school is determined by population.
All of the public schools will have screening forms and should have them filled out with the students names on testing days. Be sure to check with private schools ahead of time to see if we need to provide the screening forms to them.
Conduct screenings in a 3 hour period starting at 8:30 a.m. and ending at 11:30 a.m.
Screening forms are completed and returning to school nurses. Follow ups and retests are then performed by nurses upon recommendation of the Commiee members.
