Mascoutah School District has four Pre-kindergarten classrooms housed at Wingate Elementary and Scott Elementary School. Our Pre-k program is an at-risk program. Wingate Elementary is part of the Preschool for All program and Scott Elementary is part of the Title I Pre-k program. The Pre-k program offers a morning and afternoon session at both buildings. Currently, children that live on Scott Air Force Base are eligible to attend the Pre-k program at Scott Elementary School. Children that live within the Mascoutah and Wingate Elementary School boundaries are eligible to attend the Pre-k program at Wingate Elementary School. These locations are subject to change based on student enrollment and space availability.
Acceptance into the Pre-k programs is determined through a formal screening process. Children are ranked in order of need to fill the program. If you are interested in the Pre-k program, we will utilize the results of the formal screening tool (DIAL-4), as well as risk factors identified during an At-Risk Interview to determine your child’s placement on the ranked list. Screenings are held four to six times per school year and require an appointment. You may schedule an appointment at an upcoming screening by contacting Amy Cook at 618-566-7414, ext. 3117.
Upcoming Pre-k Screenings:
- April 12, 2019
- May 17, 2019
If your child is found eligible for one of our Pre-k classrooms, you will receive a formal invitation and directions to register your child at the school he or she will be attending. If your child is not accepted into the program and is placed on a waiting list, we will contact you if and when an opening becomes available. This could happen anytime during the school year.
If you have concerns about your 3- or 4-year-old child, and live within the Mascoutah School boundaries, please call 618-566-2152. If you have any questions about the Preschool For All program or the Title I program for Mascoutah School District, please email or call Jessica Seger, Special Education Coordinator, 618-566-7414, ext. 3118.
