Pre-Kindergarten Registration

We are excited to announce that preschool services will continue for the 2024-2025 school year in Sevier County! These programs aim to help our four-year-old children, especially those at-risk, develop essential school readiness skills.

Here's what you need to know:

1. Eligibility: Your child must be four years old by August 15, 2024, and a resident of Sevier County to be considered for pre-kindergarten. Our priority is to enroll students identified as ‘at- risk’. The ‘at-risk’ factors are determined by the Tennessee Department of Education, and include such factors as family income, family structure, and unique family situations.

2. Registration: Please attend registration at one of the listed schools below on May 29, 2024, between 8:00 AM-12:00 PM. You will receive a packet with enrollment information and screening appointment details.

3. Screening: Screening dates will be held in July/August from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and will be assigned at registration. A parent/guardian must attend at the assigned time and location and bring all required documentation. Proof of income for all working adults in the household is required.

4. Placement: Each site has only twenty placements based on local, state, and federal guidelines. Selection will be based on state-approved criteria. Please note that only the first 31 names will be taken before a waiting list is created.

5. Waiting List: If needed, a waiting list will be formed based on the time and day you submit your completed registration materials.

6. Transportation: No bus transportation is provided, so please plan for your child to attend the site closest to your home.

7. Confirmation: Parents/guardians of selected students will be contacted to confirm placement by August 6, 2024. Ensure all contact numbers are correct during registration.

8. Multiple Registrations: Registering at multiple sites is not permitted and may result in your child being placed on a waiting list.
