Clinic/Screening Volunteers Information

Clinic/Screening Volunteers

ClinicVolunteers who screen the vision and hearing of students are trained by the Health Services Coordinator of the Klein ISD as required by state law and the Texas Department of Health.

After health volunteers are trained, they assist the school nurse in the initial screening of students for vision and hearing assessment. School nurses organize the vision and hearing screenings and supervise the volunteers.

When vision or hearing problems are noted, volunteers know that students’ lives will be better because of their service for young learners.

Please contact your campus nurse or volunteer coordinator with questions. 



All clinic work requires a confidentiality statement to be signed and filed with the clinic. Please see the document container below for a sample release.
