At-Risk 4K Pre-Registration begins January 22, 2020. To be considered, children must turn four-years-old on or before September 1, 2020. Parents may pre-register at any district elementary school or child development center UNTIL MARCH 20, 2020. Pre-registration will NOT be accepted after March 20. 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 in April 2020 . PLEASE NOTE: 4K screenings will be held for pre-registered children April 1-3, 2020.
The parent/legal guardian must pre-register the child and bring the following documents (note, you cannot pre-register without these documents).
