During the month of September and October 2016, the preschool, kindergarten, and private/home school students, as well as first time W. Va. students, in Mingo County Schools will be screened for vision, speech, language and hearing.
In compliance with state/federal guidelines and county adopted policy, students who do not pass the screening will bring a letter home notifying the parent of the results and recommendations for intervention. This screening is free of charge to the students.
The professionals conducting the screenings have been appropriately trained. If you do not want your child to participate in the screening, please submit a written notification to your principal and your child will be omitted from the screening process. Any questions or concerns regarding this matter should be directed to the school or to the Special Education Department at 235-3333.
