I remember years ago being confused.

(OK, so I’m often confused. But I’m talking about a specific confusion.)

What is the preschool at Finn? Who is it for? Why is it in the public school?

I’ve since learned that the school provides special education programming for 3-5 year olds who need it. To improve their education, they integrate “typically developing” children from the community to serve as “peer role models”.

If you think your child may benefit from this education, you can schedule a screening to see if your child qualifies as a peer.

The district has announced its upcoming screening for the next school year will take place on January 30, 2014.

On Monday, the office will begin scheduling appointments. The deadline is January 16th. More details are in the announcement below:
