As you are aware we conduct PEEP assessments in our preschool program. This assessment is something that tracks the development of the children. In order for our program to be included in the collection of data showing that children are being prepared to enter into kindergarten, the state board of education collects the information by assigning an Statewide Student Identifier (SSID) to each student. The SSID number follows the child throughout elementary school and beyond. This gives other teachers opportunities to expand upon the current knowledge and development.
