Clipart children in front of a school building

Tri-Valley’s Early Childhood Screening is scheduled for Thursday, February 2nd, at the school. The screening is available at no charge for children ages 0-5 that may benefit from early childhood special education/related services. 

If your child is eligible for Kindergarten next fall, they should register for the Kindergarten screening in March rather than the early childhood screening. 

Online scheduling is available ONLY for the 3-5 year old children who are not Kindergarten eligible below. 

For birth to three years old please Call 605-446-3538 or 605-543-5500 to register with Mrs. Bunde in the Elementary Office.

Each year, The Tri-Valley School District provides an opportunity for parents to bring their young children to a screening session to help determine if there is a need for early intervention. Many times the screening finds children with potential delays who were born prematurely, had frequent ear infections as a small child, birth trauma, slow motor development, behavior and attention difficulties, or slow language development. Parents are welcome to contact the school at any time when a problem arises.

“Child Find” is also being conducted for the Tri-Valley area to identify individuals under 21 years of age who may be in need of special education services and who are not currently receiving services. Contact the school for an appointment.

Online scheduling is available for 3-5 year olds at this link.
