ODH REPORTING REQUIREMENTS

Ohio Department of Health Annual Reporting Surveys are Now Available for 2020-2021 School Year

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Children’s Hearing and Vision Programs set the screening requirements and guidelines for school-based preschool and K-12 schools. These requirements include grades that are routinely screened each year; acceptable equipment to use; specific hearing and vision tests needed to perform the screenings; and the referral criteria. The Children’s Hearing and Vision Program monitors compliance with these guidelines through annual school reporting through hearing and vision screening surveys.

The Ohio Department of Health annual reporting for hearing and vision screenings during the 2020-2021 school year is now available for electronic submission. Preschools and K-12 schools must report their hearing and vision screening data annually to the Ohio Department of Health by June 30, 2021. 

Schools must complete the survey even if hearing and/or vision screenings were not completed due to COVID-19.
