Edmond Public Schools will open its online application period for 2020-2021 pre-k programs Feb. 17-March 6. By state law, children who are four-years-old, but not older than five-years-old, on or before Sept. 1, 2020, are eligible for the programs which are available on a space-available basis. The application process is not first-come, first-served. All applications are weighted equally regardless of when the online application is submitted.
All applications must be received before 4:00 p.m., Friday, March 6. Once the application window closes, a random drawing will be held to fill the available spaces. Parents of children who are placed into a pre-k program will be notified on April 2.
“Once the application period closes March 6, we will take a detailed look at the number of applicants and compare that with our available classroom space and staffing and make any adjustments we can to serve as many students as possible,” said Price Brown, executive director of elementary education.
Pre-k programs are free but there is no bus transportation available. Parents are responsible for their children’s transportation.
Parents may access the application Feb. 17. https://edmondschools.net/programs/pre-k/
