Cassville to host preschool screenings

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

The Cassville R-4 School District will host preschool screenings for 3-year-old and 4-year-old children on April 11 and April 18.

Parents of preschool children may call the primary office at 417-847-2445 to schedule an appointment. The DIAL-III test will screen children in the following areas: concepts, language and motor development.

In addition to the DIAL-III test, each child's vision, hearing and articulation will also be screened.

Screening will take about one hour to complete, and results will be shared with the parents.

Results will be used to determine eligibility for Cassville's two preschool programs: Title I preschool and Early Childhood Special Education Preschool.

Children who are already in the Title I preschool or who will be eligible to attend kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school tear should not participate in the screening.
