Welcome to the STMA School District
The STMA community has a long-standing tradition of high-quality education. Our families value the importance of excellent education as shown in their continued support of our school district. STMA students excel because their learning is future-focused and placed at the center of everything the district does.
The decision of where to send your children to school is one of the most important decisions any family will ever make. Becoming an STMA Knight means that your child will attend school in a safe, positive learning environment and become a self-directed learner, purposeful thinker, effective communicator, and responsible citizen.
We believe becoming an STMA Knight will be a wise decision and one that will greatly benefit your children and your family. We are here to help and give you the information you need. If you have additional questions, please call us at 763-497-3180.
Online Census Form
If you have already filled out the form for each of the children in your home in the above categories, you do not need to fill out the form again.
The St. Michael-Albertville School District keeps a record of all families in our district. Being on the school census ensures that:
- You will be notified of Early Childhood Screening.
- You will be notified of Kindergarten Enrollment dates.
- The primary school will be expecting your child when it's time for kindergarten.
- Accurate planning and projection for the growth of STMA Schools.
- Maximum funding is received by our district from state governments.
It is very important to the school district that families in the above categories fill out a School Census. If you are new to the District or have made changes since the last time you filled out a census form, please fill out a new census. If you currently do not have children in the categories listed above living in your home, you do not need to complete the online census form.
Any child attending school in the state of Minnesota must have an Early Childhood Screening record. It involves a simple, easy method of finding out how a child between the ages of 3 and 4 is growing and developing.
Thank you in advance for your help in keeping our records current. We greatly appreciate it! For more information, contact the District Office at 763-497-3180.
Early Childhood Screening
The purpose of Early Childhood Screening is to promote healthy development, to identify children who may need further evaluation, and to connect families to resources in the community.
What is Early Childhood Screening?
Early Childhood Screening is a quick and simple check of how your child is growing and developing. There is no cost to participate in the Early Childhood Screening Program.
During the appointment, trained professionals and volunteers check vision, hearing, height, weight, large and small muscle skills, thinking, language and communication skills, and social-emotional development. Early Childhood Screening helps us identify potential health and learning concerns so that children can get help before starting Kindergarten.
Does my child need an Early Childhood Screening?
All of the information from your child's Early Childhood Screening is important to his/her future school success. After the screening, you will know how your child is growing, developing, and learning. Children who attend a Minnesota public school need to participate in Early Childhood Screening prior to starting Kindergarten or must take place within 30 days after beginning Kindergarten. Children who attend Head Start or Early Childhood Special Education may not need to participate. Please call the screening office for more information. Early Childhood Screening is not a substitute for healthcare from your family physician or other providers.
If you conscientiously object to Early Childhood Screening, please contact Jane Helgestad at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-497-6512 to obtain the necessary required paperwork.
When should I have my child screened?
Early Childhood Screening is available to children when they turn three years old. Although your child may be screened at any time before Kindergarten, the ideal age range is between three and four years of age so that any health or developmental concerns can be addressed sooner.
