Preschool Screenings Underway in the ISD
Preschool screenings are underway for children age 4 entering preschool in the Independence School District. Depending on your income, there may be no cost for preschool.
To make an appointment for your child, please call 816-521-5314. Screenings will take place July 16 and 30 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the ISD Central Office located at 201 North Forest Avenue. Students participate in a 30-minute screening comprised of hearing, vision, language, speech and preschool readiness testing.
Parents will need to bring two proofs of residency (utility bill, mortgage or rental agreement), income verification (pay stubs or tax return), as well as their child’s birth certificate and immunization records to their screening appointment. Screenings are not mandatory, but they help to identify the best program for your child.
