Universal Screener

Indiana’s public and charter schools must meet requirements to identify, as early as possible, struggling readers who show risk factors for dyslexia and then provide systematic, sequential, and multi-sensory instruction to meet their needs.

All K-2 students will undergo a universal screener to check their skills in six different areas. These areas are phonological and phonemic awareness (ability to separate and change sounds in words), alphabet knowledge (name different letters), sound-symbol relationship (phonics), decoding (reading), rapid naming (quickly naming common objects), and encoding (spelling).

Students who fall below a set score or benchmark on the universal screener will be found “at some risk” for the characteristics of dyslexia.

If you do not want your child to participate in the universal screener, please contact the Instructional Coach at your school.

Student Breakfast

The food service office would like to remind all households that breakfast is offered to student daily at all JCSC schools. The full price for the student breakfast is $1.50, or $0.30 if the student qualifies for reduced meals. If you have any questions, please contact the food service office at 346-4483.
