Vision Screening Guidelines Advance before State Board of Education-Slated for October
CSNO has worked in conjunction with the California Department of Education to update the Guidelines for Vision Screening in California Schools since 2015. In partnership with a grant from School Nurses of California Foundation, CSNO convened a vision screening taskforce comprised of CSNO School Nurse members, Pediatric Ophthalmologists; Optometrists, community members and other eye care specialists to update the document, which was last published in 2004. Statutory changes and technology have ushered in the need for updated, nonbinding guidelines. The Guidelines are slated to go before the State Board of Education in October. Following their presentation to the State Board of Education, the public will have an opportunity to comment. CSNO will keep our members apprised of the document's progress.
