daviess co kindergartenOWENSBORO, Ky. (3/14/14) — The Daviess County Public Schools district has extended registration for children who will begin preschool or kindergarten beginning in August 2014.

Parents may register students between 7:40 a.m. and 2:20 p.m. weekdays, March 3 through March 21.

The original window was March 3 through March 14, but dates have been extended because of inclement weather experienced the week of March 3.

Kindergarten is open to all children who will be 5 on or before Oct. 1.

Preschool is available at all 12 DCPS elementary schools to children who will be 3 years old on or before Oct. 1 and who either meet Head Start eligibility requirements or are identified with a delay or disability; and children who will be 4 years old by Oct. 1 who meet income guidelines or are identified with a delay or disability.

Preschool is offered in morning and afternoon sessions, Monday through Thursday each week.

Free screenings are available to all DCPS families with preschool age children to help determine if there are any educational concerns.

Fee-based preschool slots are available within DCPS elementary schools for children who do not qualify for free preschool based on household income or if the child is identified with a delay.

The DCPS district provides free transportation. Breakfast and lunch are also available.

Parents may visit the school their child will attend to complete an application; or preschool and kindergarten applications are available on the DCPS website. Click on the red “Parents” tab, then select “How to Enroll,” then “Preschool” or “Kindergarten.” Forms may be filled out electronically, then printed and taken to the school your child will attend.

For more information, parents may call (270) 852-7000 or visit their neighborhood elementary school; or go to www.dcps.org and select “Preschool” under the “Departments” tab across the top of the page.
