Pre-K Program Information

All Barrow County School System (BCSS) Pre-K classes/slots are pending state budget/funding and approval of the BCSS Pre-K Grant Agreement by Bright from the Start, Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning

The BCSS Georgia Pre-K Program will be located at the eight elementary schools and will follow the Barrow County School System Pre-K calendar, and Pre-K hours are to be announced. Bus transportation will be available along with breakfast and lunch. The BCSS Pre-K classes teach the Bright from the Start GELDS (Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards) and use the HighScope curriculum as a framework. You may also go to for more information on Bright from the Start, the Pre-K program and other resources.

The Barrow County School System currently has two Pre-K classrooms at each of the 8 elementary schools  for a total of 16 Pre-K classes. All Pre-K students must attend a Pre-K class within their elementary school attendance zone. The first 22 students drawn in the lottery from each elementary school attendance zone will be in Pre-K Class A for that school attendance zone. The next 22 students drawn will be in Pre-K Class B. Enrollment is limited to twenty-two students per class. Any openings that become available in the 16 elementary Pre-K classes will be filled using the waiting list from that school attendance zone. The Pre-K Coordinator will keep documentation of the progression of the waiting lists.

Families should come to the Barrow County School System Professional Development Center March 3-28 to pick up and complete a lottery application for the 2014 school year.  This information will also be available online at starting March 3, 2014.  Please click on the 14-15 Lottery Application Info link for more information on the 2014-2015 Pre-K Lottery application process.
