Ladd Community Consolidated School District #94 will conduct Pre-K screenings on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. To be screened, children must be at least 3 years old by September 1. The screenings are by appointment only. To register a child for the screening or for answers to questions, call Ladd School at (815) 894-2363. The screening determines eligibility for a grant-funded preschool program which the district has applied to receive for the 2018/19 school year. Screening is required for placement in the program and consists of a series of tests including cognitive, speech, vision, and hearing. If the district receives a grant award from the state, priority placement will be based on a student’s school readiness after the children have completed this screening process.

Sewer Backup Reporting
The Village of Ladd is in the process of implementing a CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operations, and Maintenance) Plan for the Sanitary Sewer Collection System. In order to improve the ability to identify where basement backups and overflows occur, a system of record keeping will be implemented. For each complaint or notification received by the Village concerning a sanitary sewer overflow or a basement backup with the potential of being caused by issues with the Village’s collection system, a report will be generated. A form has been created for the purpose of keeping these records. Residents are encouraged to print, complete and submit the form to the Village Clerk’s office when they experience a sewer backup event. Forms are also available in the Village Clerk’s office. For more information, contact Superintendent Doug Englehaupt @ (815) 894-2806.
