Beginning February 1 through March 3, 2021, parents of 4-year old children who live in Catoosa County may enter their child’s name in the drawing for the lottery-funded Georgia Pre-K classes. 

A public drawing to award available Pre-K assignments will be held VIRTUALLY on the Catoosa County Public Schools website on Thursday, April 15, at 9:00 a.m.   Parents or legal guardians who would like to have their child’s name entered in the drawing must complete and return a Request for Enrollment Form between February 1 and March 3. Any request received after March 3 will be placed on the school system’s waiting list after the lottery drawing is completed.
