Pre-K programs will be offered at all JCPS elementary schools during the 2022-2023 school year. To be eligible, families must complete an application form (see below) and return it to the JCPS Board of Education at 398 Hospital Rd, Sylva, NC or the front office at Blue Ridge School in Cashiers, NC.
As a state and federally-funded program, multiple criteria are used to determine who will be placed in our Pre-K classrooms. Placement is not first-come first-serve, however it is important that application forms be returned by April 6, 2022 for students to be considered for the initial selection group.
After we receive a completed application with proof of the child’s date of birth and documentation of income for the parent(s) in the home with the child, you will be contacted to schedule a screening date. The screening score along with other criteria will be used to select the students who are placed in the program. We hope to inform families of placement in the program by May 31, 2022.
You may download the following application materials:
- Welcome letter with information from the Pre-K Director (please read carefully).
- Checklist to ensure that your application is complete and the correct materials are returned on time.
- Permission form so we can share your information with the NC Pre-K office (required).
- NC Pre-K Application (read closely and complete accurately; contact us with questions).
Complete and return application form by April 6, 2022.
