Brawley Dr., NW Atlanta 30314 to sign-up for this valuable education program.
The lottery drawing is scheduled to be conducted from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20 and will be managed by Data Systems and Games, Inc. A certified public accounting firm will validate the results, which will be posted at each Pre-Kindergarten site by Monday, July 2.
Through the current state-funded Pre-K initiative, APS offers a comprehensive full-day program for approximately 850 four-year-old children. To participate in the APS Pre-K program, a child must be four years of age on or before September 1, 2012 and reside in an APS attendance zone or be the child of an APS employee.
Transportation will be provided for children who live more than a mile from their zoned elementary school. Children who enter Pre-K by way of the Special Needs Department will receive transportation to and from their school site.
