The Department of Public Health wants to remind all parents that scoliosis screening is required for all students in the 6th and 8th
grades who attend public school in Georgia. Scoliosis is a sideways curve of the spine. About 3% of children are affected by scoliosis. It can
occur at any age but is often noticeable between the ages of 9 and 16, when growth occurs rapidly. For more information, please click on the links below.
