Early Entrance Kindergarten Screening for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on Monday, August 7, 2017.  In order to begin this evaluation process, please contact Special Pupil Services at 216.587.6100, ext. 3601 by Tuesday, August 1, 2017.  Please leave a message with your name, your child's name and a daytime phone number.  Messages will be returned by Wednesday, August 2, 2017 and an appoint for the screening will be scheduled.  Evaluations will take place at Abraham Lincoln School, located at 6009 Dunham Road.

*Children who will be 5 years old after September 30, 2017 but no later that December 31, 2017 may qualify for early admission in the 2017-2018 kindergarten program in the public schools if they show a high degree of maturity in areas of social, cognitive, and motor development. During this process, the child will be given a cognitive assessment and should the child's IQ score meet the Early Entrance criteria, then additional evaluation will be scheduled at that time. After all evalucations have been completed, the parent/guardian along with a team of staff will consider all data and determine if the child meets the criteria for Early Entrance.
