Child Developmental Screenings
Throughout the school year, PCSD offers Child Developmental Screenings. This is a FREE screening opportunity for children ages 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 who reside within the Pulaski Community School District. We encourage all residents to participate by completing the Ages and Stages Questionnaire, even if you feel your child has no developmental delays. The purpose for the screenings is to assess children's developmental progress and provide parents with awareness of child growth and development issues.
What is the Ages and Stages Questionnaire?
The Ages and Stages Questionnaire is a developmental screening tool used by both educators and health professionals. It relies on parent expertise of their child to respond to questions about things their child can and can not do. The questionnaire includes questions about a child’s communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal social skills. This questionnaire is the same questionnaire that pediatricians utilize to check developmental milestones.
The district's program is systematic, sequential, clearly defined, and accountable. DPI licensed school counselors develop, implement, and assess all program components through collaboration with teachers, parents/guardians, administrators, students, and community/businesses. Curriculum delivery is a collaborative effort of all school staff. The school counseling program helps ensure equal opportunity for all students to participate fully in the educational process.
English as a Second Language (ELL)
English as a Second Language services are provided through the Student Services Department. We are privileged to be of service to students from several different language groups and at various levels of English proficiency. Each student brings something unique and special to the district and is a joy to work with.
School nursing is a specialized practice of professional nursing that advances the well being, academic success, and life-long achievement of students. To that end, school nurses facilitate positive student responses to normal development; promote health and safety; intervene with actual and potential health problems; provide case management services; and actively collaborate with others to build student and family capacity for adaptation, self management, self advocacy, and learning."
A homebound instruction program is a special program in which a teacher serves children in the home, a hospital, a sanitarium or a convalescent home. The program may include, but not be limited to, direct teaching services, correspondence courses, telephone instruction and distance learning technology.
A child may require homebound instruction because of illness, injury, pregnancy or school exclusion (e.g., expulsion).

According to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, "The Education for Homeless Children and Youth (EHCY) Program's major responsibility is to implement the McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act. Homeless children and unaccompanied youth must have access to public school educational programs and services that allow them to meet the same challenging state academic standards to which all students are held.
Section 504 is stated in one sentence of the The Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This is a civil rights law that prohibits agencies that receive federal funding from discriminating against persons with disabilities on the basis of that disability. The main emphasis in the schools is equal educational opportunity. This is usually accomplished by providing appropriate classroom accommodations to eligible students with disabilities that are not severe enough to qualify for special education, but which are substantially limiting their learning or other major life activities. Eligible students are afforded an equal opportunity to participate in school extracurricular and non-academic activities. For more information on Section 504, please contact your child's school principal.
Special Education provides a variety of services to students with disabilities. The Pulaski Community School District provides these programs and services across the district. If you have questions about Special Education programs and services, please contact the Student Services Office at 920-822-6020.
