A family's connection with the Ray-Pec School District can begin well before a child enters kindergarten. Parents as Teachers is a program that serves families with children who are younger than kindergarten age. In fact, services can begin before birth - with a first contact when a family is expecting a child. PAT is a program in Missouri that is offered through local school districts.
In the Ray-Pec School District, parent educators provide home visits, annual developmental screenings, and family activities throughout the year. To sign up for PAT services, contact Cindy Watson at 816-892-1220.
