The Pre-K lottery application for the 2024-2025 school year will be available from February 1, 2024 at 9:00a.m through March 1, 2024 at 11:59p.m. The lottery drawing will be held on March 15, 2024. Lottery results must be verified before they can be released. The verification process can take a few days, however, all applicants will be informed of the results via email and on their parent dashboard found within the enrollment system after this process is complete. After the lottery drawing takes place on March 15th, our application will reopen on March 25, 2024 and remaining seats will then be filled on a first-come first-serve basis. If a seat becomes available and you are next in line to receive a seat, you will be contacted by phone.
Lottery Application Process
Applicants can access our online lottery application by visiting www.enrollearlyatl.com from February 1-March 1, 2024. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO COMPLETE THE APPLICATION BEFORE FEBRUARY 1ST. Doing so, will cause you to submit an application to the wrong school year and your application will not be included in the lottery. It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete the application. You will be asked to submit copies of key documents before your application is considered complete and can be submitted. Required documents are listed below. Failure to submit the correct documentation will result in your application being marked ineligible for lottery participation. If you are unable to complete the application in one sitting, you can save your information and return later, but must submit by March 1st at 11:59 p.m. Lottery applications will NOT be accepted after March 1st at 11:59 p.m. for any reason.
When completing the application, applicants will be allowed to select a maximum of three different Pre-K sites and should list them in order of preference. Selecting three sites is optional. If you are only interested in one or two sites, leave the other site selection fields blank. Although not mandatory, we strongly encourage you to select your child's zoned school as your first choice. Acceptance into your zoned school creates an easy transition to kindergarten. In addition, school bus transportation services will only be offered to your child if they are accepted into their zoned school and live more than 1 mile away from the school. If you apply after the lottery drawing has taken place, you will only be allowed to apply to one site.
Once the lottery results have been verified, each applicant will receive an email informing them of the results. If your child is not accepted, he or she will be placed on the waiting list for your first choice only.
