Special Education Preschool Services

The Mercer Island School District offers special education services to preschool children three to five-years of age. The services are designed to provide support to children with a documented disability who reside in the Mercer Island School District attendance area. Upon referral, the preschool team will determine if screening or further evaluation is necessary. Services are provided for students that qualify. For more information regarding the preschool, please see the Special Education Preschool Program Description.

Who is eligible: Eligibility is determined by meeting qualifying criteria in at least one of the following areas: communication, cognition, social-emotional, adaptive, and/or motor.
 
Enrollment in the special education preschool requires a completed student registration form. You will also need to complete an  D.O.H. Certificate of Immunization (Vaccines Required for 2013-14), a Home Language Survey (English, Other Language), and Preschool Transportation Form.  Completed paperwork should be returned to Pam Baumler at the Mercer Island Administration Building (4160 86th Ave SE, Mercer Island).
