Alabama’s School Scoliosis Program is an opt-in screening program (meaning you must request the screening) for students in grades 5-9. Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine and is a common disorder. Most curvatures are of minor consequence, but some can progress and lead to serious health conditions if not corrected. It is recommended that all children ages 11-14 be screened annually. School nurses can provide that service at school if desired. If you are interested in having your child screened at school, please fill out the attached consent form and return it to the school.
