Early Childhood Screenings

Is my child eligible to register for the 2022-2023 school year?

The St. Joseph School District Preschool Program serves children who are four years of age by August 1st of the current year; as well as three and four year old children who qualify for special education services under IDEA.


To determine eligibility, your child will participate in an Early Learning Screening. All children must have completed the DIAL-4 screening before attending SJSD preschool.

After the child is accepted, and prior to the start of school, you will be given a code to complete the online registration. You will need the following to upload into the registration:

Copy of their most recent immunization record
Copy of the birth certificate
Copy of proof of residency (utility bill is required).

NOTICE: ALL children must have a "consent to screen" form signed by a parent/guardian. If someone other than the parent/guardian will be accompanying the child to screening, additional consent from the parent/guardian will be needed in order to release the results.

If you have a parent educator through Parents as Teachers, they may be available to facilitate the screening in your home.
