FCS to Accept Pre-K Applications for the 2023-2024 School Year

FCS to Accept Pre-K Applications for the 2023-2024 School Year


Application Process

  • Pre-K Applications will be available on the district website homepage beginning Monday, January 30, 2022.

  • To participate in the lottery drawing for Pre-K, online applications must be completed by Friday, February 10, 2023, at 3 p.m. 

  • If accepted in Pre-K, parents are required to provide proof of residency which is a copy of the power, water, or gas bill in the parent’s name.  

    • Proof of residency documentation must match the student’s address on the application.  If proof of residency documentation and the student’s address on the application do not match, the student’s spot in Pre-K will be forfeited, the student will be placed at the end of the waiting list, and the spot will be filled from the top of the waiting list. Families with questions regarding proof of residency should contact the school registrar.

  • Children may only apply at ONE school.

When will parents find out if the child has a spot?

Families will be notified by mail of the results of the lottery drawing in late March.

Late Applications

Late applications will be accepted after Friday, February 10. These students will be placed on a waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis. Slots will be filled as they become available.

Out-of-District Students

We accept out-of-district students.  For the lottery drawing, students residing in the school’s attendance zone are given priority.  Then, we select students who reside in Floyd County (not Rome City).  Finally, we accept out-of-district students residing in Rome City or another Georgia county.   Students MUST live in Georgia to participate in Pre-K.

Age Requirement

Children must be 4 Years Old by September 1, 2023, to be eligible for Pre-K.
