Registration for Pre-kindergarten at Roland Park will open next Monday, April 7, 2014. Enrollment will begin promptly at 7:30 am. Please have all required documentation. Contact the school at 410-396-6420 for a registration packet which details the needed documentation. If you do not have a complete registration packet at the time of registration, your registration will not be processed. We will only be registering students who meet the priority one eligibility on April 7th. Pre-K enrollment is based on a priority system which is detailed below. If you qualify for priority one eligibility due to your child receiving special education, you must bring a copy of their IEP. If you do not qualify for priority one eligibility and are still interested in attending pre-k at Roland Park, you will be placed on a waiting list which will be accessed on August 1, 2014 if there are still seats available.
Priority 1: Income Eligible and Age Eligible; Special Education Eligible
Children are both age and income eligible if they turn four by September 1 and qualify for free or reduced price lunch or are experiencing homelessness. They have first priority for placement at their neighborhood school (or the nearest available location, if the neighborhood school’s pre-k spaces are filled) and are immediately enrolled when their parents/guardians follow the registration guidelines. Note that age-eligible children who receive special education services are also admitted in Priority Group 1, regardless of family income.
Priority 2: Age Eligible
Children who turn four by September 1 but are not income eligible have second priority for placement. Parents/guardians can still register their age-eligible children for pre-k by following the registration guidelines. Schools will accept registration materials for these Priority 2 children and, beginning on August 1, will begin enrolling them on a first-come, first-served basis. If a space is not available at a family’s neighborhood school, the neighborhood school will help the family find a placement at the closest school with available seats.
