PRE-REGISTRATION DATES SET FOR ALABAMA’S VOLUNTARY PRE-K PROGRAM
LAFAYETTE – Pre-registration for new pre-k students during the 2021-2022 school year will begin this Friday, January 15. Enrollment is open to all children four years of age on or before September 1, 2021, who are residents of the state of Alabama. Pre-registration will remain open through Thursday, March 25, 2021.
Forms are available online at https://alprek.asapconnected.com. Parents or guardians must provide copies of each child’s birth certificate and proof of residency, which can be uploaded into the online pre-registration site or submitted directly to the local school.
A parent guide to registration can be found on the Chambers County School District’s website at www.chambersk12.org, which gives step-by-step instructions on how to complete the enrollment process. Hard copies of this guide can also be obtained at each school where pre-k classes are offered.
There is no registration fee for the program. However, upon enrollment, each child’s immunization record must be provided.
Acceptance for Chambers County children is strictly determined through a random drawing to be held on Friday, March 26, 2021, beginning at 9 a.m. Central time at the Chambers County Board of Education office in LaFayette. Parents or guardians do not have to be present for the drawing. Notices of the results will be emailed beginning Friday, April 16, 2021.
Parents will notice when accessing the registration site that the only two schools listed for choice are Huguley and Bob Harding-Shawmut, which is due to the way funding is apportioned
