Clinton Schools screening to be conducted in March

CLINTON — Clinton Unit School District 15 will conduct a screening program for all children who will be age 3 and younger than 5 on or before September 1, 2019.

The screening will determie eligibility for the CUSD 15 Preschool for All program.  The prgram serves preschool children who, without early intervention, may be at risk for academic difficulties later in school.  Not all children who are screened will be eligible for the program.

Parents are encouraged to register their children for a screening appointment.  Children will receive vision and hearing checks, along with an assessment of speech / language, social, cognitive and motor development.  Screening sessions will last approximately 60 minutes.

Parents may register their children on Monday, March 4, between noon-6 p.m. at Douglas School or on Thursday, March 7, between noon-6 p.m. at Lincoln School.  Appointments will be made at this time, and information packets will be handed out.  Only adults registering children need to attend.  Questions may be directed to Lauren Thompson at (217) 650-9382.

The screening program will be conducted March 18, 19, 20 and 21 at St. John Parish Center, 514 N. Monroe Street.  Childcare is not available.  Adults should bring only the children who will participate in the screening.

Parents of preschool children screened last year who are not in a CUSD 15 preschool program are encouraged to have their children screened again this year.  Children currently enrolled in a CUSD 15 preschool program do not need to be screened.
