At-Risk 4K Pre-Registration for 2016-2017
At-Risk 4K Pre-Registration begins January 27, 2016. To be considered, children must turn four-years-old on or before September 1, 2016. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center UNTIL MARCH 4, 2016. Pre-registration will NOT be accepted after March 4. 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 2016. 4K Screening is March 16-18, 2016.
