From Nurse Stephanie . . .
The State of Texas changed the spinal screening guidelines this year to consider the most recent, nationally-accepted, peer-reviewed recommendations for the appropriate age to conduct mandatory spinal screening. In compliance with Health and Safety Code, Chapter 37, all children shall undergo screening for abnormal spinal curvature in accordance with the following schedule:
Girls will be screened two times, once at age 10 and again at age 12. (regardless of grade level)
Boys will be screened one time at age 13 or 14. (regardless of grade level)
In McKinney ISD, we will consider a student to be 10, 12 or 13 if the student is already this age or turns this age between May 1, 2018 and April 30, 2019.
The procedure for screening is simple. Your child will be examined while he/she stands and then leans forward, observed from the front, back, and side. For this examination, boys and girls will be screened separately. Boys will wear their pants or gym shorts and only remove their shirts. Girls will need to wear a halter-top, sports bra or a two-piece swimsuit with pants, shorts, or skirt.
