 An academic screening is available for students to determine overall functioning in reading, math, and written language. This assessment provides insight into the academic performance of the student and indicates the areas of strengths and weaknesses the student displays.

For those students who are struggling in one or more academic areas, the screening defines the nature of the problem and determines whether the student is "at risk" for future learning problems. It is also an indicator whether a more comprehensive evaluation is necessary.
