Pre-Kindergarten Pre-Registration Runs January 15 - March 1, 2024

  • TCSS Pre-Kindergarten Pre-Registration for the 2024-2025 school year opens on January 15, 2024, and will close on March 1, 2024.

    Students are accepted into the Pre-K program through a random drawing. Students who have completed their pre-registration will be entered into the drawing. Drawings will be held at schools on March 8, 2024. Drawings are open to the public, so parents/guardians may attend to see if their child's name is drawn for a spot.

    If you are unable to attend the drawing, parents/guardians are also notified (after the drawing) if their child's name was drawn for a spot in the Pre-K class, or if they are on the waiting list. Typically, TCSS receives more applications than we have spots in our Pre-K classes. Names are drawn to fill available positions in the Pre-K class, then names continue to be drawn to determine the order of names on the waiting list.

    To Pre-Register:

    • If you are zoned for Northport Elementary School or Faucett-Vestavia Elementary School, you must go by the school office to pick up a pre-registration application. 
    • Families zoned for all other TCSS schools should visit this page to pre-register. Paste this address into your internet browser if the link doesn't work:
    • Note: The application process is different for Northport Elementary and Faucett-Vestavia Elementary because pre-k at those schools is not funded by the state pre-k program. All other schools are funded by the state pre-k program and must use their pre-k registration link.
