Each year parents or guardians of 4-year-old children residing in Catoosa County may enter their child’s name in the drawing for lottery-funded Pre-K classes. Please check our homepage and newspaper for the exact date.
We would like for all 4-year-old children in Catoosa County to have the opportunity to experience Georgia Pre-K; however, our classes are limited to space available within the school system and funding provided through Bright From the Start.
Catoosa County currently has eleven (11) Pre-K classes. Each class has 22 children. Schools which house Pre-K are: Battlefield Primary, Boynton Elementary, Ringgold Primary, Tiger Creek Elementary, West Side, and Woodstation.
Children must be four years old by September 1 and they must reside in Catoosa County.
The Catoosa County Pre-K drawing is scheduled for May 5, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. and will be held in the Board Room. Parents/Guardians are not required to attend the drawing for a child to be eligible. Pre-K registration packets for the drawing will be available March 27 – April 20 at all Catoosa County primary and elementary schools. Registration for the drawing may also take place at the Student Enrollment Center (108 High Street, Ringgold) between March 27 and April 20, 2017. Packets will need to be completed at the time of registration. In order for a child to be eligible to attend the Catoosa County Schools Pre-K Program, children must be 4 years of age by Sept. 1, 2017, and parents/legal guardians must be a Catoosa County resident at the time of registration for the drawing. Only the custodial parent or legal guardian can register a child.
