Sign up for the Gainesville Pre-K Lottery

Info from Gainesville City Schools: 
In order to register for the Gainesville City Schools Pre-K program, your child must have been selected through our Georgia Pre-K Lottery Drawing held on February 5, 2020. If your child was not selected in the drawing then you should complete the Wait List Form at the school board office.  Only students who reside within the Gainesville City School District attendance zones are eligible to be added to the wait list for their attendance zone. Once a space becomes available, parents will be notified based on the date of entry on the wait list (Priority order). 

Below is a lottery schedule, and locations of key events. (Contact info can be found at the bottom of this page.)
