Ketchikan, AK - The Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District announced that it is again offering FREE Early Childhood Screening for ALL preschoolers in the community on April 8-9, 2004. The goal of the district is to screen ALL children ages 2 1/2 to 5 years old. According to information provided by Kim Voetberg of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School District, if your child has been screened before it is not necessary to do so again.

Each child will be tested in the areas of small and large muscle coordination, cognitive ability, speech, language, hearing and vision. The purpose of this screening is to provide parents with information on how their child is doing on age level skills, and to offer assistance if needed. This screening is offered at no cost by the KGBSD.

If you have a child who qualifies for screening, contact Kim Voetberg at 247-2115 for more information.

The district also asks you to encourage friends and relatives with children of this age group to contact the Ketchikan School District to arrange a screening time.
