4K Pre-Registration This Week!

At-Risk 4K Pre-Registration for 2015-2016

At-Risk 4K Pre-Registration begins January 28-30, 2015 To be considered, children must turn four-years-old on or before September 1, 2015. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center UNTIL MARCH 2, 2015. Pre-registration will NOT be accepted after March 2. Children do not have to live in the school attendance area to pre-register at that location. Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in a GCS 4K program. Children selected for 4K programs must demonstrate academic/developmental needs and/or risk factors such as low family income and low parent education level. Screened children will be ranked district-wide and those most at-risk for school success will receive initial assignments. Notification of 4K acceptance will be mailed to parents late March 2015. PLEASE NOTE: 4K Screening is March 18-20, 2015.

To pre-register your child for consideration in At-Risk 4K, bring the following documents: Parents cannot pre-register without these documents.

  • State-issued Birth Certificate
  • Properly Completed Immunization Certificate or Religious Exemption Certificate (Religious Exemption Certificate is provided by the Health Department)
