Parents with eligible children will be able to register them for the district’s Georgia lottery funded Pre-kindergarten program this week, Feb. 25 through March 1 at the elementary school they are zoned for.
On Feb. 25, 27, 28 and March 1, registration will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.; on Feb. 26, registration will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The county has 586 Pre-K slots at 13 elementary schools available for the 2013-14 school year, and children will not be placed on the roster for possible selection until all required documentation is submitted. Registration does not guarantee children a slot in the Pre-K program.
Once registration has concluded, parents with all documents submitted have their names placed in a lottery drawing for the school zone for possible selection.
When all the slots are filled, the remaining names will be placed on a waiting list in the order they were drawn, and called if and when spaces become available.
Children must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, to qualify for enrollment.
