Early Childhood Screenings
Glencoe School District 35 is offering early childhood screenings for Glencoe children birth through 5 years of age. The screenings are open to Glencoe residents who have concerns about their child’s development in the areas of: speech-language, fine motor skills, concept development, and/or social/emotional growth. Vision and hearing screenings are also provided for children 3 years and older.
Screenings will be held at South School on Monday, October 22nd and Wednesday, October 24th from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM, by appointment only.
Children will participate in all components of the screening. These screenings are being conducted in an effort to identify children who may qualify for special education services and/or consultation during early development. Please note, the screening is not designed to determine kindergarten readiness. To make an appointment, please contact Kim Badie in the Pupil Services Office at (847) 835-7838. Please call by 3:00 PM Wednesday, October 17, 2018.

New Trier High School Strategic Plan
New Trier High School needs your input as we plan for the future of our school district in the next decade and beyond. We have included a link to a survey from our independent research firm, Hanover Research. This survey asks about your goals and priorities in areas such as New Trier’s curriculum, extracurricular programs, climate and culture, and facilities and operations.
Please take a few minutes to share your opinions with us. This anonymous survey will give our planning committee important information as we develop our new strategic plan, New Trier 2030. The plan will define our district’s goals and prioritize the work we do within our school. More information about our planning process will be posted on our website in the coming weeks.
Thank you in advance for helping shape the future of New Trier.
Dr. Paul Sally, Superintendent of New Trier High School
