What else should I know about Early Childhood Screening?
*Children need to successfully complete screening only one time before kindergarten.
*Screening is normed by age so there is no advantage to waiting. In fact, the best time to do screenings is around 3.5 years of age, so parents can gain information and access resources for readiness in school. Children are screened one at a time and individual attention is given to the needs of the child and family.
*If your child participates in this screening, he/she is not required to attend school in the Glencoe-Silver Lake School District. You are free to choose where your child will attend school regardless of where he/she is screened.
*Sometimes families are accidentally missed in this process. Please help us to reach all children by sharing this information with family and friends who have three or four year old children. Please contact Michelle at 320.864.2681 to update our records.
*If GSL Schools are closed due to weather, we will contact you to reschedule. If GSL Schools are 2 hours late, we will have the afternoon appointments and call you to reschedule the morning appointments.
*If you need to reschedule your appointment, please contact Megan at 320.864.2548 or Michelle at 320.864.2681.
