The Armstrong School District conducts a screening program in the month of March for all children entering kindergarten according to the districts age of entry. Children will be screening during the kindergarten registration.
During the screening, each child completes a series of tasks at various stations that focus on visual, auditory, and motor areas. In addition, language and other cognitive areas are assessed. Classroom teachers, physical education teachers, reading specialists, nurses, and speech clinicians administer the screening program. Information gathered during the screening is used to enable our staff to create classroom environments that help children grow and learn.
After the screening, parents/guardians receive a summary of the results.
