Stark County Integrated Preschool (SCIP)

Register HERE join the waitlist.


SCIP is the acronym for the Stark County Integrated Preschool, and is a joint venture between the Stark County Educational Service Center and the Lake Local School District. Preschool special education classes enroll children on an Individual Education Plan (IEP).  The classroom teacher is a special education teacher. Therapists, a social worker, and psychologist are available to provide services in these classrooms. 
The SCIP program is designed for 3 - 5 year old children who reside in Lake Local District. Half of the students in the SCIP program have documented disabilities and half of the students are peer role models. 

The SCIP Program at Lake Primary is currently full for peer models for the 2024-2025 school year. If you would like to join the waitlist, the link to the application form will be posted on the district website:


Peer models are selected through a mandatory screening process each spring. The screening process will be in-person at Lake Primary the first Monday in March. At the screening, your child will participate in a variety of preschool activities with several other prospective students, looking at their social, communication, motor, and language skills. Applications are accepted through January 31st at 4PM. Registrations after this time become the waitlist.
