Catoosa County Schools Pre-K Class Lottery Enrollment for 2024-2025

Beginning February 1 through March 5, 2024, 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 VIRTUALLY on the Catoosa County Public Schools website on Friday, April 12, at 9:00 a.m.   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 February 1 and March 5. Any request received after March 5 will be placed on the school system’s waiting list after completing the lottery drawing.

The Request for Pre-K Drawing 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. (closed for lunch from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm) 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.

Eligibility

Currently, a child must be born between September 2, 2019, and September 1, 2020, 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.
