Ladd Community Consolidated School District 94 will conduct Pre-K screenings on Wednesday, March 15th and Tuesday, May 9th for the 2017/18 school year. To be screened, children must be at least 3 years old by the date of the screening. Children who will be 3 by September 1st will be screened on May 9th. The screenings are by appointment only. The screening determines eligibility for the grant-funded preschool program that may be at Ladd School next year. Screening is required for placement in the program and consists of a series of tests including cognitive, speech, vision and hearing. If the school receives a grant award by the State of Illinois, priority placement will be based on a student’s school readiness after the children have completed the screening process. For questions or to register a child for the screening, call Ladd School at (815) 894-2363.

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.
