Welcome to the Ridgeland School District 122 Prevention Initiative Program
About our Program
The Prevention Initiative Program is a grant funded program that strives to ensure children within our community have effective and supportive relationships with the adults in their life. Our home visitors provide support to parents and their children in their homes based on the goals set with the family at no cost to the families. Additionally, families are able to meet other families at play groups, community activities, family events, and parent education opportunities. These exciting encounters support the Illinois Early Learning Guidelines along with the Baby Talk Curriculum.
Families must register, be screened, and found eligible to receive services from this free program. All families must live within the boundary lines of Ridgeland School District 122. If interested or should you have any questions, please contact one of the home visitors listed.
Mission of the District:
Knowing that all children can learn, we strive each day to provide an environment that contributes to positive attitudes and personal success for learners.
Every child can learn.
Every child is unique and deserves respect.
Learning needs to be the focus of every classroom.
The environment needs to foster self-worth and a positive relationship among students, staff, parents, community, and the Board of Education.
Our community will benefit from schools with a challenging curriculum that is developmentally appropriate.
Therefore, we can build an educational foundation to serve children not only in further educational services but in life as well.
