Hearing Screening Information Letter Dear Parent/Guardian: All preschoolers, kindergartners and students in grades 1, 3, 5, 8, & 11 are required by the Ohio Department of Health to have their hearing screened. The hearing screening will take place at your child’s school during the school year. Why is it important to have your child’s hearing screened?
· Hearing is important for speech, language development, reading and learning.
· A hearing screening can detect if your child needs further hearing testing.
· Even if your child has passed a hearing screening previously, hearing can change.
· Hearing problems can be related to medical problems.
· Hearing loss is invisible and child may appear to be not paying attention. If your child fails the hearing screening, a letter will be sent home requesting that he or she be seen by an audiologist or primary health care provider for further evaluation. If you have any questions, please contact Jean Kirchner, M.A., CCC/A, District Audiologist at 216.838.1861. Sincerely, Samantha S. Brown Samantha S. Brown, M.A., CCC-SLP Director - Speech, Language and Communication Services
3/16/2020 CMSD has turned 22 elementary schools into meal sites that will help keep students 18 and younger fed with free carryout meals during the extended spring break ordered by Gov. Mike DeWine.
U.S. Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham teamed up with Wade Park School students on Friday to emphasize the importance of everyone being counted in the 2020 Census.
CMSD graduates received a boost this year from new Say Yes to Education scholarships that pay up to the full value of tuition. The scholarships may be used at all public colleges and universities and Pell-eligible training programs in Ohio and more than 100 private colleges and universities across the country.
