Kindergarten Readiness Screening

Kindergarten Readiness Screening

Kindergarten students will be given a Kindergarten Readiness Test (KRT) in May or June prior to entering school. The purpose of this screening is to prepare for the individual needs of the students.

The development skills, which are measured in the KRT, are usually considered stepping stones for success in school. Most preschool children have acquired the skills used in this test by the time they are 5. The results of the KRT are to be used in conjunction with classroom teacher observation at the start of the school year to identify strengths and weaknesses. This will help teachers develop their plans specifically with your child in mind.
