Parents of students who will be eligible to attend the Fayette County Public School System’s state-funded Pre-K program for the 2018-19 school year can register their children for a lottery drawing beginning Jan. 16.
Pre-K programs are being offered at Cleveland, Crabapple Lane, Fayetteville, Huddleston, Inman, Kedron, North Fayette, Oak Grove, Peachtree City, Sara Harp Minter, Spring Hill, and Robert J. Burch elementary schools. Students must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2018, to be eligible for the program.
Registration for the lottery drawing will be held Jan. 16- Feb. 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the schools offering Pre-K programs. Parents must present residency information (visit www.fcboe.org for acceptable documents) and their child’s birth certificate to register for the drawing.
The lottery drawing will be held on March 1 at the participating schools. Parents only (no children) may attend the lottery drawing. A total of 22 students will be selected for each class. School personnel will notify parents of those students whose names are drawn.
If there are vacancies at the end of the first day of school, and there are no students in the school attendance zone on the waiting list, students residing in any Fayette County school zone will be drawn from a second waiting list. In this case, parents are responsible for transportation to and from school.
Upon notification of admission, parents will need to provide the required enrollment documentation for registration. These documents are posted on the school system’s website, www.fcboe.org.
