The screening appointment lasts about 1 hour. Your child’s placement status letter will be mailed by August 1.
Can I apply for Pre-K after May 17?
A child whose application is received after May 17 and before March 1, 2014 will not be assigned a screening appointment unless a vacancy is predicted. You may be contacted at any time during the school year to schedule a screening appointment.
How are children selected to participate?
WS/FC Schools public pre-Kindergarten offers placement to children in the initial applicant pool based on rank ordered demonstrated educational need. The child who will benefit most from pre-Kindergarten services is offered placement first.
If the eligible applicant pool is exhausted and a vacancy occurs, the applications of children who applied after March 15 and were screened will follow the same placement process.
If the waiting list of screened children is exhausted and a vacancy occurs, children who applied after May 17 and were not screened will be contacted to schedule a screening appointment.
