Each year the Jackson City School District conducts Kindergarten Screening during a week in April. This week long activity allows the district to provide a comprehensive screening for young children who will be entering the school district in August. This year's registration/screening activities will be held on April 16-20, 2012 at one of the elementary schools.
All children must be screened before a child can enter school for the first time. Children who should be screened in April include those who will be five years old on or before August 1, 2012 and plan to attend kindergarten during the 2012-13 school year or four year olds with a suspected disability.
To be eligible for Kindergarten/Preschool Screening, parents must be residents of the Jackison City School District. To register for screening, parents should call Becky Burns at 286-6442 as soon as possible. Appointment times will be given prior to screening.
