Early Childhood Screenings
School District 126 offers preschool screenings by appointment only for children between the ages of 3 and 5, who are residents of Alsip Hazelgreen Oak Lawn District 126. The developmental screenings assess the areas of communication, motor, cognitive and social-emotional skills to determine if a child is meeting his/her developmental milestones.
In order to be screened, a parent needs to contact Gina Fiske, Program Coordinator at (708) 293-3511. Parents will receive a screening packet in the mail to complete in its entirety. Once parents return a completed packet, screenings are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Screenings are conducted by a team at District 126 who specialize in Early Childhood Education.
School District 126 Preschool Program utilizes a state criteria checklist to determine eligibility for the program. Upon completion of the screening process, a variety of options are available based on the results of the screening. Some options may include:
- A child maybe placed in a preschool program if eligibility requirements are met (or placed on the waiting list if the program is at capacity)
- Referred for further evaluations
- Referred to a Head Start program if a resident of Oak Lawn
- Re-screened to monitor progress
- Referred to the District 126 play groups.
