Kindergarten Readiness Test

All incoming District 97 kindergarten students will participate in a mandatory Kindergarten Readiness Snapshot screening. Through this screening, we will be able to effectively assess children’s skills and abilities prior to starting kindergarten, and be better equipped and prepared to meet their academic, social and emotional needs during the school year.

Each screening will last approximately 30 minutes. Please note that the purpose of this screening is to help us keep students on the path toward success—it does not affect your ability to enroll your child in the district’s kindergarten program.

The screenings are by appointment only. Please use the links below to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to schedule a screening in the spring, District 97 will hold additional screenings during the summer. More information will be announced at a later date.

In addition to bringing your child to the screening, we also ask that you complete the online Ages & Stages Questionnaire.  It provides us with valuable information that we use to get to know each child better, assist with the transition from pre-school and aid our efforts to create balanced classrooms.  The Ages & Stages Questionnaire can be accessed by click the following URL:  http://www.op97.org/asq.

We look forward to working with you to help your child excel both in and out of the classroom.
