August, that teaches you how to screen a student – for vision or
hearing. A quick check-out with the county lead on September
1-4th (pick a day that works for you) – bring your online quiz
and sign that you have completed training – short and simple!

we can complete in one day! If you have a couple hours or even
more during that day we would be grateful!
