The Watertown Public Schools will be conducting screenings for 3 and 4-year
old preschool aged children that live in Watertown. The screenings are
completely voluntary and are available to families that have concerns about
their child's development. The screenings are conducted by the special
education team and provides information about a child’s functioning in all
areas of speech and language, fine and gross motor skills and overall cognitive
growth. Screening results help to indicate whether more specific information
or an evaluation in a particular area of development is needed.
Families will be asked to provide proof of residency prior to the screening.
Proof of residency is a current lease, rent or mortgage statement and utility
bill with the Watertown address.

Below are the dates for the screening. Please complete the Google Form and
a member of the team will confirm your spot for the screening.
If you have any questions you can call 617-926-7765.


Resolution on Affirmation of Support for Staff, Students, and Community Members of Color

Whereas, People of Color face greater discrimination, structural discipline, lack of social support both in schools and in society at large;

Whereas, children, adolescents and adults in the Black community face higher rates of social and structural violence and racial discrimination,

Whereas, students’ and staff’s well-being is a fundamental concern of the Watertown School Committee and school boards across the country.

Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the Watertown School Committee affirms its immediate support to promote the needs and safety of all staff and students who identify as a person of color,

And Be It Resolved that the School Committee of Watertown, Massachusetts urges state and federal policymakers to support laws and regulations that:

  • Provide appropriate and necessary safety measures for People of Color during a period of unrest in this nation, and guarantee the rights and safety of all those protesting for their lives.


  • Hold accountable all public officials, police officers, and all those who serve their community for their responsibility to equitably represent and protect the public, and also hold accountable any individuals and organizations that take racist actions or in any other way do harm to the Black Community and People of Color.


  • Enhance programming to provide schools with the structure and guidance needed to provide an anti-racist curricula and professional development for all staff to build understanding and awareness of the beautiful history and the challenges of being a person of color, and of the structural and endemic racism in the United States.

The School Committee gives its support to responsible civic actions by students, educators and others who are raising the visibility of this issue and seeking changes in public policy.
