Universal Dyslexia Screener

During the Week of September 19th-23rd, SCEC will give the Dyslexia Universal Screener to K-2 students and selected 3+ students.

Students in kindergarten, grade one, grade two, and selected 3rd-8th graders will be given the screener within the first 90 days of school. Parents of students who are determined to be “at risk” or “at some risk” for learning characteristics related to dyslexia will be notified of screener results and be provided with the next steps of intervention. Parents will be asked for permission to administer Level I and Level II diagnostic assessments. Parents of students who are not at risk for characteristics of dyslexia will be notified of screener results and will resume regular educational programming.

Latest P-EBT Payment

Many families may mistakenly believe they did not receive benefits, but the benefits are on a card they’ve lost or misplaced. In that case, they must order a new card through FSSA. Due to volume, replacement cards may take as long as 2.5 weeks to arrive so please advise patience with families ordering replacements.
