Catoosa County Schools Pre-K Class Lottery Enrollment for 2018-2019

Beginning March 27 through April 20, 2018, parents of 4-year old children who live in Catoosa County may enter their child’s name in the drawing for the lottery-funded Georgia Pre-K classes.

A public drawing to award available Pre-K assignments will be held at the Catoosa County Board of Education Office, 307 Cleveland Street, Ringgold, Georgia, on Friday, May 4, at 9:00 a.m. Applicants, parents and/or guardians do not need to be present for the drawing but are welcome to attend.

Parents or legal guardians who would like to have their child’s name entered in the drawing must complete and return a Request for Enrollment Form between

March 27 and April 20. Any request received after April 20, will be placed on the school system’s waiting list after the lottery drawing is completed.

The Request for Enrollment Form is available at all primary and elementary schools in Catoosa County (8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.) and may also be completed at the Student Enrollment Center, 108 High Street, Ringgold, Georgia, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Pre-K enrollment is open and nondiscriminatory, based on a public lottery among those eligible to participate. Children will not be denied participation on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, or disability.


Currently, a child must be born between September 2, 2013, and September 1, 2014, to be eligible for Georgia Pre-K services, and the child must be a Catoosa County resident at the time of the drawing. Georgia residents outside of Catoosa County will be placed on a waiting list until all children within the district are enrolled. If space is available, children enrolled from outside the county may be required to pay out-of-county tuition.

For questions, please call Gina Haynes, Pre-K Coordinator at 706-965-6067.
