COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – The Muscogee County School District is preparing for Pre-K enrollment.

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the State’s effort in preparing children for success in Kindergarten and later school years through its Pre-K Program, a state lottery-funded educational program.

Children four years of age on or before Sept. 1, 2018, are considered eligible to apply. Online applications will open Feb. 26 on the district’s website.

Parents can also access the application at the District’s Public Education Center and Early Success Centers:

  • Double Churches Elementary
  • Eagle Ridge Academy
  • Forrest Road Elementary
  •  Fox Elementary
  • Lonnie Jackson Academy
  • Mathews Elementary
  •  Rigdon Road Elementary
  • South Columbus Elementary
  • JD Davis Elementary

Acceptance into the program is based on available funding and space

All applications submitted by March 9 will be entered into a lottery drawing with equal chances of random selection for a Pre-K seat, regardless of the application date. 

Parents will then be notified, by mail, of acceptance or waiting list status by March 16, and must accept their students’ assignment no later than March 23, 2018, to be officially entered into the program. 

Priority will be given to students living in the assigned school attendance zone and applications submitted during the application period.
