ECDEC‎ > ‎

Prospective Families

Information on Screening:


All prospective students must go through a screening to determine eligibility for the ECDEC program.  The screening is an opportunity for our Early Childhood Team to observe and interact with your child in a natural play setting.  At the end of the screening a member of the team will meet with you individually to discuss your child’s strengths, areas of concern and eligibility for the program. 


If you would like to schedule a screening for your child, please call the phone number for your local school district:
