Applications for Typical Peers Accepted through 8/10

The Highland Schools 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. Cost is $140 per month. Your child must be three years old by August 1, 2022, and use the bathroom independently.

The district will accept a limited number of children to attend preschool. You do not get to choose your child’s teacher or if your child will be in the morning or afternoon session. PLEASE NOTE: School bus transportation will not be provided this year, due to the current driver shortage.

This screening day will encompass a Play-Based Assessment of your child’s interaction with others. Your child must be able to separate from their parent/caregiver and join the group in the preschool classroom for the assessment. Following the assessment, peer role models are chosen by a lottery drawing.  

To apply, complete the APPLICATION and return to Highland Local Schools, Office of Pupil Services, 3880 Ridge Road, Medina, 44256, or email to lgehring@highlandschools.orgApplications must be submitted by August 10. The screening day is set for 9:30 a.m. on August 15. Please arrive by 9:20 a.m.
