The Preschool Application and Selection procedure has been updated for the 2023-2024 school year due to current and projected student needs in the district.  The tuition rate has been updated to align with current costs while remaining under the State's average per pupil cost.

Applications are now available for our 2023-2024 Preschool Program

Once the application deadline has passed, all applications will be reviewed for completeness and assignments will be made based on available openings and a lottery system, if necessary. All applications will be placed in the lottery system.  

Siblings of current students will not have priority for openings.
