2018-2019 Enrollment Information

As part of our enrollment process for the 2018-2019 school year, the Weld RE-4 School District is offering a developmental screening for children ages 0-5 who reside within district boundaries. This screening is held to provide developmental information to families, to help determine eligibility for the Colorado Preschool Program and/or identify preschoolers that may need further testing to determine if they require special education services. The screening includes a check of vision/hearing and assessment of developmental and speech/language skills.

The dates for the 2018-2019 school year are:

September 21, 2018
November 16, 2018
February 22, 2019

Even if you do not plan on having your child enter preschool in the Fall,

 these screenings are open to any parent who would be interested in

 finding out their child’s developmental skills.

To schedule an appointment or if you have questions call 970-686-8010.
