Parents/Guardians will have to create an account prior to beginning the application.  They may save and exit the application if they need to complete it at a later date.  (If you go back or click the back arrow in the application before completing the entire page you or on, you will lose the information you entered and will have to redo that page. You may want to save the application at the end of every page if you can't complete it in one sitting.)

Parents/Guardians will get to select and apply to two (2) schools.  All first choices (#1) will be the child's home-based school.  If the child's home-based school does not have a Pre-K class, the parent/guardian may select two (2) other schools.

Applications will be placed in the lottery after each round has closed.  Parents/Guardians will be notified of their status through SchoolMint the week of May 24th no later than May 31st. 

*Please note that we only have 600 total Pre-K spots.  Once they are filled, eligible children will be placed on the waitlist and will be notified if a spot becomes available.
