PCSSD's Pre-K program is a free, standards-based program that aims to build strong foundational skills that help prepare students for kindergarten. It is open to qualifying students who turn three or four on or before August 1 of the enrollment year. Slots are limited and are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Pre-K will accept applications for the 2021-2022 school year starting on January 11, 2021. 

Parents can print the application. Complete the application. Then, scan the completed application and all required materials to emckinzy4772@pcssd.org for processing and approval. Acceptance of the paperwork is not a guarantee of acceptance to the PCSSD ABC Pre-K program. Families MUST qualify based on Arkansas Better Chance Grant requirements.   

Pre-K students will be assigned to schools based on the PCSSD zone map. For more information about the guidelines for Pre-K in PCSSD, please refer to the annual Pre-K Guidebook.
