Oswego CUSD #308 would like to welcome all incoming kindergartners and parents to our annual kindergarten screening. Kindergarten screening is a brief, individually administered measure given to all incoming kindergarten students to gauge the development of skills prior to the start of the kindergarten year. Kindergarten screening is not a process of determining eligibility for kindergarten; all students who meet the age requirement are considered ready for kindergarten and encouraged to enroll. Oswego CUSD #308 teachers will administer and supervise all screening activities. Screening results provide useful information for planning instruction and designing learning experiences that address the educational needs of all incoming kindergartners in reading and mathematics.
While kindergartners are being screened, parents will be asked to complete a parent information survey. Parents will also have the opportunity to access information regarding transportation, food services, and district health services.
