There are currently 792 Pre-K slots available to children who are 4 years old on or before September 1, 2017. Selection is based on a random computer lottery, and there is no cost to participate.
Students may attend Pre-K at their zoned neighborhood school or parents may choose to register them at one of three alternative locations: Northwoods Academy, Alexander II Magnet School or Vineville Academy of the Arts. Transportation will not be provided to non-zoned schools and parents may only register their child for one school.
Parents who need assistance with applying online may visit the Central Office, 484 Mulberry Street, Suite 267, between the hours of 8 and 11 a.m. Monday-Friday between Feb. 5-19.
Parents will be notified by email by March 3, 2017, if their child has been accepted into the District’s Pre-K Program. If a child's name is not selected, his or her name will automatically be placed on the waiting list for the school to which they applied.
If a child is selected, parents will be required to provide registration documents within the allotted time frame of March 6-17, 2017, to complete the registration process. If registration documents are not received during this time frame, the child’s Pre-K slot will be forfeited. Registration documents include:
· Two proofs of residence (mortgage statement/lease agreement and utility bill for address of residence),
· Child’s certified birth certificate,
· Child’s Social Security card,
· Immunization - GA form 3231
· Ear, Eye, Dental and Nutrition Screening - GA form 3300, and
· Photo ID of parent/guardian.
Also, parents must attend a scheduled orientation before the 2017-2018 school year.

The Bibb County School District will kick-start the kindergarten registration process for the 2017-2018 school year in March. Parents will be able to pre-register their children for kindergarten online at www.bcsdk12.net March 6-17. Once the information is processed, schools will work with parents to schedule an appointment for the parent to visit their child’s school and complete the registration process in April.
The online pre-registration process for kindergarten will be simple, with parents completing a basic form online with the child’s name, date of birth and address. Documents required to register a child for kindergarten will not be necessary until the parent meets with school administration to complete the registration process. Parents will not be required to register a child for kindergarten if they are currently enrolled in a Bibb County School District Pre-K program.
In order to complete the registration process, parents will be required to provide the school with the following information during their scheduled appointment in April:
· A certified birth certificate, which shows the child will be 5 years old by September 1, 2017
· A Social Security card
· Two documents validating proof of residence, which may include:
o Lease or mortgage with the address - Required
o Current utility bill (electric, water, or gas) or mail from any government agency
o Most recent income tax return
o Property tax statement
o Automobile registration or insurance
· An updated Certificate of Immunization on Form 3231 (Shot record from the Health Department or doctor)
· Certificate of Dental, Vision, and Hearing Screening on Form 3300
· Emergency contact information should be completed during registration.
