Stark County Integrated Preschool (SCIP)

Register HERE beginning January 4, 2024


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 has openings for preschool peer models for the 2024-2025 school year. The online application will be available on January 4th, 2024. The link to the application form will be posted on the district website:
