District-wide Kindergarten Screening will be held for five days at each of the district’s five elementary schools. Montville elementary school Kindergarten Screenings are scheduled from mid-April to late-May.
At Kindergarten Screening children will complete a series of activities to provide teachers with an indication of the developmental level of each child. The screening lasts about one hour. Each child has his or her picture taken, meets each of the kindergarten teachers, speaks with the teachers, and does a few simple tasks. No preparation is necessary. Kindergarten Screening is not a test.

- Hilldale: April 20-24
