Eligibility for Pre-k
Because space in pre-k is limited, City Schools uses a priority system to enroll children. If space is not available at a family's neighborhood school, school or district staff can assist in finding a place at a nearby location.
Priority 1 children are eligible for City Schools pre-k. These are children who
- Are four years old by September 1 of the school year and
- Are considered low-income or are homeless or receive special education services
Priority 2 children can be registered for pre-k and will be enrolled if space is available. These are children who
- Are four years old by September 1 of the school year but
- Are not considered low-income, are not homeless or do not receive special education services
Priority 2 children are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis beginning August 1 for the 2017-18 school year.
