Child Development Screening is an opportunity for children with a birthday between 9/1/2016 and 12/31/2018 to be screened. If your child is between 2 and 4 years of age and has never been screened, or if you have concerns about their development, please fill out the form.

We strongly encourage all district children to be screened regardless of where you plan to send you child to school.  However, this screening is not mandatory.

With the current COVID precautions, the Algoma School District will not be conducting child development screening in the same was as in the past. Instead, we are inviting families who live in the district to participate by filling out two child development questionnaires.  After we review the questionnaires, one of our child development screening team members will contact you to go over the results and answer any questions you may have.

To participate in this screening,  please fill out this form.

If you need help registering or have any questions, please call Rachel Schneider, Early Childhood Teacher at (920) 487-7001 ext 1100.  Registration is due by February 26, 2021.
