Kindergarten Screening Process - Summer 2017

Every kindergartner will be screened prior to the start of the school year and this will help us better prepare every student for success in Kindergarten and beyond. We’re eager to meet you and get to know your child’s unique personality and learning needs.

Here are the tentative dates of our Kindergarten screenings.
Please call for an appointment. We want to complete our screenings before August 22. Every screening takes about one hour. 

  • The screenings will take place at Jefferson K-7 (282 West 30th St.)
  • Screenings happen on  July 31, Aug. 1, 3, 4, and 16 from 8am-2pm.
  • Screenings happen on Aug 2 and 8 from 3-7pm.

Please schedule your appointment as soon as possible.

Contact one of the school offices shown below or Melissa Bosch in our Teaching for Learning Office at 494-2040.

Remember, our kindergarten screening is not a test. There are no scores or grades. The screening process helps our teachers get to know your child.

The full screening process consists of The Brigance Screener (early math, reading, & school readiness), time to play, and a parent questionnaire. At the end of your child’s one-hour screening, information about the recommended placement for Fall Kindergarten will be shared.

Please call Melissa Bosch at 494-2040 if you'd like more information.
