Free Developmental Screenings for two through five year olds

Effingham Unit #40 and the Depart of Early Childhood will offer screenings for parents to discover how their child is developing in the areas of speech, language, concepts, and motor skills. Vision and hearing screening are also offered free of charge. 

If your child is already in the Unit #40 ECSE Preschool, kindergarten, or Head Start, he/she will not need to go through this screening.  Signed parent/guardian permission is required.

District Dashboard

 For your convenience, we put together a District Dashboard that provides our stakeholders with the ability to view how the district uses its resources to ensure student growth is occurring.  [This site is best viewed in Chrome.]

The dashboard provides users with a unique view of how the district's learning environment and financial resources are used to ensure student success. 

Additional information, including the school report card, is available on the district's academic performance page.

In closing, we want to thank the community for its ongoing support and providing us with the ability to create an environment "where the search for excellence" occurs in classrooms across the district on a daily basis.
