Why don't schools test vision and hearing every year?

I've noticed that, while state and school districts vary in guidelines, schools tend to give a vision test and a hearing test every few years. There are stories where people did not have vision or hearing problems detected until they have had problems for years, so why wouldn't schools test both sight and hearing every year?

    Because of the expense. Parents are supposed to get their kids tested for both, not wait for the schools to do it.
