Free Eye Exams to 3rd Graders Who Did Not Pass Reading Assessment 

The Mississippi Optometric Association and the Mississippi Vision Foundation have announced an initiative to provide free eye exams to Mississippi 3rd grade students who did not pass the reading test and do not have insurance coverage. For students who are covered through private insurance or CHIPS, doctors will file on that coverage and parents will be asked to cover the co-pay for the visit due to laws which require the doctor to collect this amount. Parents who are unable to pay the out-of-pocket expenses should discuss this with the doctor. Additionally, any student whose eye test reveals the need for corrective lenses will be provided glasses.

To take advantage of the free vision test, parents should: 

  • Call their local participating optometrist to schedule an appointment;
  • Tell the receptionist they are scheduling the free 3rd grade eye exam;
  • Bring the letter notifying them that their child did not pass the assessment test with them to the appointment;
  • To locate a participating optometrist, visit www.msvisionfoundation.org or call 601-572-0845.

 No Child Left Behind

The major focus of No Child Left Behind, a reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), is to close student achievement gaps by providing all children with a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. It required each state to adopt academic standards and statewide testing that meets federal requirements.

The high school dropout problem is a severe epidemic for the United States, as nationwide, it is reported that only 71 percent of students graduate from high school. Understanding the magnitude of the problem and the forces that impact dropout rates is critically important to developing effective strategies.
