Pre-K Program

All Barrow County School System (BCSS) Pre-K classes 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 Pre-K classes teach the Bright from The Start GELDS (Georgia Early Learning and Development Standards) and use the Frog Street Excel Pre-K curriculum.

All BCSS Georgia Pre-K Program classes are at the nine elementary schools. They follow the BCSS calendar and elementary school hours (7:30 a.m.-2 p.m.). Bus transportation is available within your child's elementary school zone. Pre-K students must attend class within their elementary attendance zone (unless student numbers create a need for a combo class).

The number of Pre-K classes at each school will be determined based on the number of Pre-K Lottery applications and factors such as space available, etc. The first 22 students drawn in the lottery from each elementary school attendance zone will be in Pre-K Class A. The next 22 students drawn will be in Pre-K Class B. If there is a need for a class C in that zone, the next 22 students drawn will be in Class C. The rest of the students drawn in the lottery will establish the order of the waiting list for that school attendance zone. Enrollment is limited to 22 students per class.

Pre-K Students in class

Any openings that become available in the Pre-K classes will be filled using the waiting list from that school attendance zone. The Pre-K Director will keep documentation on file of the progression of the waiting lists.
