    Requirements for Entry Into School

    New York State mandates the following requirements for entrance to a new school district:

    1. A doctor signed and stamped Immunization Certificate showing proof of the required immunizations as per NYS law.

    2. A doctor signed and stamped Health Certificate / Appraisal form showing proof of a physical exam within one year of child’s entrance of school.  ( For Kindergarten entrance this will usually mean done after September 7 of the  previous year)

    3. A Dental Health Certificate containing a report of a comprehensive dental examination

    Preschool Screenings

    Vision and Hearing Screenings are done in the Spring prior to entrance into Kindergarten by the nurse.  Referrals to doctors will be made, if needed.

    Kindergarten Academic Screening

    The children will be screened in the following academic areas:

    • Recognition of letters and numbers
    • Identification of beginning letter sounds
    • Identification of basic shapes and colors
    • Counting objects
    • Fine Motor Skills
    • Cutting on a line
    • Writing their first name
    • Holding the pencil and scissors

    Speech and Language

    The speech and language screening evaluates your child’s ability to utilize appropriate communication skills.  These skills include:

    1. Articulation – your child’s ability to produce age-appropriate sounds.

    2. Language – your child’s ability to understand messages and express needs, wants, thoughts and ideas.  This portion of the screening will explore your child’s ability to understand and use vocabulary, sequence events, remember sentences of increasing length and complexity, and comprehend directions involving spatial (location) and temporal (time) concepts.

    3. Pragmatics (social language) – your child’s ability to separate, transition, and interact with the staff and other children.

    The ENL department participates during the kindergarten screening process if a child has a home language questionnaire that indicates another language spoken.  First, we speak with the parents to learn more about the languages spoken at home.  Then, we conduct and informal interview with the student.  Based on information ascertained from the child, we administer the NYSITELL, a state approved language assessment that measures language proficiency.  The scores attained will determine the student’s eligibility for the ENL program and their English language proficiency scores of entering, emerging, transitioning, expanding and commanding.  These levels establish the number of periods of ENL required based on state guidelines.
