Applications for Typical Peers Accepted through 2/18/22

The Highland Local School District is now accepting applications for typically developing three, four, and five-year-old children to serve as typical role models in our preschool program. These children will serve as good language and play models for children with identified disabilities while attending our preschool program located at Granger Elementary, 1724 Wilbur Road, Medina. The program runs half-days, Monday through Thursday, and the cost is $140 per month. Your child must be three years old by August 1, 2022, and use the bathroom independently.

The Highland School District will accept a limited number of children to attend the preschool program. You do not get to choose your child’s teacher or if your child will be in the morning or afternoon session. PLEASE NOTE: No school bus transportation will be provided this year, due to the current driver shortage.

Based on the number of responses received, the screening process for typical peers will take place as soon as possible. This screening day will encompass a Play-Based Assessment of your child’s interaction with others. The second step will be a parent interview. Parents will be notified by phone as to the screening date and time.
