Pre-K Application Opportunity Added

January 15, 2016

Please note: This article was originally published on 1/15/2016. Information and/or dates from past events may be not be relevant for the current school year.

Another opportunity for parents to apply for the CMCSS Pre-Kindergarten will begin in May.  To be eligible, children must be 4 years old before or on August 15, 2016 and reside in Montgomery County.  The Tennessee Department of Education mandates every effort must be made to enroll the economically disadvantaged (low income). While hundreds completed the application process in March, most did not meet first priority mandatory status. Therefore, other parents will be given an opportunity to complete the application process.

1. Official Birth Certificate
