The Norwalk City Schools will soon be in the process of conducting screenings of all students who will be entering kindergarten this fall. To be eligible for kindergarten for the upcoming school year, a child must be 5 years old by Sept. 30, 2007. This year, kindergarten screening in the Norwalk City Schools will be a bit different then in past years. Due to some changes in requirements from the state as well as some scheduling conflicts, kindergarten screening will take place during the week of May 14. A major change will be that only a portion of the screening program will be completed in May. In May, the incoming kindergarten students will be screened in the areas of vision, hearing and receptive language. The receptive language area addresses how well a student is able to receive and use auditory information. Students must be able to follow directions and use and understand language in order to learn in school. In addition, the parents will complete the registration process for kindergarten as well as meet with the school nurse regarding their child's immunization history.
