Preschool PEER Mentor Screening Registration is open!

To all families interested in having their child apply and be screened for our district's 2022-2023 preschool classrooms, please note there will be an application that opens up on October 1st through our district website, specifically on the Early Childhood Home Page. You will find a link to a Google Form to complete with your child's information. We will send out a sign-up genius in December to those families that apply to select a screening date and time, which is required to enter our preschool lottery. We always have more applicants than we can serve, therefore this will be a first come first serve process for sign-ups. Once sign-ups are complete, we plan to screen all Peer Models in January of 2022 and complete our lottery by the end of that month. All families will be notified if their child will be placed in our preschool at the beginning of February. If any part of our process changes, we will notify each applicant's family via email. **If you are a current three year old student in our preschool program, you do not need to complete this as you will be able to move to our four year old class automatically.***
