• District 87 provides free developmental screenings of Pre-Kindergarten children who live in the district. The screening, designed for 3 to 5 year old children, looks at speech and language development, thinking and reasoning abilities, muscle coordination, social skills and other readiness skills. The child's vision and hearing are also screened. The screening helps answer questions about a child's development and identifies children who are eligible for one of our programs.


    Screening for children birth to 3 may be available through our partnership with Early Intervention.


    Pre-Kindergarten Screenings will be held:

    • September 1st, 2nd and 3rd, 2021
    • January 20th and 21st, 2022
    • April 7th and 8th, 2022


    Appointments are required. Parents/guardians should call Sarah Raymond School at 309-827-0308, or email contactraymond@district87.org if you are interested in having your child screened.
