Registration Day Set for Pre-K Program

Parents of students who will be eligible to attend the Fayette County School System’s state funded pre-K program for the 2010-2011 school year can register their children for a lottery drawing beginning in February.

Pre-K programs are being offered at Brooks, Crabapple Lane, Hood Avenue, Inman, North Fayette, Oak Grove, Peachtree City and Robert J. Burch elementary schools. Students must be four years old on or before September 1, 2010 to be eligible for the program.

Registration for the lottery drawing will held February 1-26 from 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. at the schools offering Pre-K programs. Parents must present residency information (visit for acceptable documents) and their child’s birth certificate and social security card to register.

The lottery drawing will be held on March 1; a total of 20 students will be selected for each class. School personnel will notify parents of those students whose names are drawn.

If there are vacancies the first day of school and there are no students in the attendance area on a 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 remaining documentation for registration. These documents are posted on the school system’s website,
