Preschool Screenings set for August 3, 4 and 28

The Newark City Schools Preschool program will be completing screenings for children with suspected disabilities on August 3, 4, and 28. If you suspect your child might have a disability and want to have him or her screened by the district, please call 740-670-7025 to schedule an appointment. Due to the continued restrictions on the number of children allowed in a preschool classroom at one time, the district is not screening typically developing children at this time. Once these restrictions are lifted, the district will be scheduling screenings for our typical placements. We will continue to update the district website with any changes. More +
