KSD 140 provides a at-risk screening for children who will be three years of age or older prior to the opening day of school. The purpose of this screening is to determine if your child may be at-risk for future academic difficulty. Additional screenings for students who are three years of age or older are also provided on selected dates throughout the school year. Only children residing in or attending a parochial school in Kirby School District 140 will be screened.

Children's development in the areas of speech, language, fine motor, gross motor, concept formation, and preschool readiness skills are screened. Results of these screenings are used to identify students who might be at risk of developing difficulties with school and to identify students for further evaluation if a disability is suspected.
