The State Education Department requires the District to hold a prekindergarten lottery each year to ensure access and opportunities for children. Our NYSED grant includes District Pre-K programs, and we partner with Fulmont Head Start and Whispering Pines PreK 4 year old programs. If more than 145 applicants are received a lottery will be held to determine student placement in our Prekindergarten programs on March 1st at 11:45 A.M. at the District Office. Students not receiving a placement will be placed on a dated waiting list. If there are less than 145 applicants the students will be placed in the program closest to their first choice.
