We are happy to announce that Diagnostic Center Central resumed in-person assessments May 2021. Please be advised that the Diagnostic Center is experiencing unusual delays in scheduling student assessments due to our limitations providing in-person services during the 2020-21 school year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Student assessments are scheduled based upon the application date and the availability of the most appropriate assessment team for each student. Please know that we are committed to scheduling student assessments in the most expedient and efficient manner as possible. Thank you for your patience as we move forward during these challenging times. Please Contact Us if you have additional questions.
