Pre-K screening planned in Ladd

LADD — Ladd Community Consolidated School District 94 will conduct a Pre-K screening Feb. 26 for the 2014-15 school year.

To be screened, children must be 3 years old by Sept. 1. The screening determines eligibility for the Preschool for All program that may be at Ladd School next year. The screening is required for placement in the program and consists of a series of tests including cognitive, speech, vision and hearing.

If the district is granted a Preschool for All award by the state of Illinois, priority placement will be based on a student’s school readiness after the children have completed the screening process. To register your child for the screening or if you have questions, call Ladd School at 815-894-2363.
