Information about vision screening:

· In a normal school year, a basic vision screening is completed for every elementary aged child in the Beaverton School District. It is unlikely vision screenings will be performed in the school setting for the 20-21 school year due to COVID-19.

· The American Optometric Association recommends regular eye exams for all children

· Please contact School Nurse Kim Bartholomew if you need help accessing vision services. Kimberly_bartholomew@beaverton.k12.or.us
