Peer role models will work with students with special needs.

Oxford Public Schools is looking for preschool students for the 2014-15 academic year to act as peer role models for students with disabilities.

The school district is holding a screening session from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Quaker Farm School on April 4.

Peer models with work with fellow students with special needs in order to foster a more interactive learning environment for both groups.

“Our goal is to provide an appropriate learning environment incorporating both early childhood special education and developmental preschool programs, to prepare all children — those with disabilities and peer models — for the greatest opportunities for educational success,” the district said in a release. “We understand that our children learn best through self-initiated activity; therefore, our learning activities reflect this philosophy.”

Peer models will be chosen based on language and social skills observed during the screening.

Students must be 4 years old by August and an Oxford resident.

Applications should be downloaded and completed prior to April 4 and faxed to 203-881-5038 or mailed to: Director of Pupil Personnel Services, 1 Great Hill Road, Oxford, CT 06478.
