Enrollment for Dawson County Schools GA Pre-K will be based upon a lottery system, as specified in the operating guidelines from Bright from the Start. Priority will be given to children of Dawson County Schools employees, as well as to students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP). A team of central office staff members will randomly draw names for the remaining Pre-K spots. If your child's name is chosen, you will be contacted within 48 hours of the lottery to complete the enrollment process. You will be required to make a registration appointment and turn in all required documentation to complete your child's enrollment for GA Pre-K 2020-2021. 




Information about our Pre-K Programs:
The Dawson County School's Pre-K Program is a GA Pre-K program,  funded through the Georgia Lottery and the Dawson County School SystemIt was created to prepare eligible 4-year-old children for Kindergarten. Students must be 4 on or before September 1 and be Dawson County residents to be eligible for Dawson County Pre-K during the current school year. GA Pre-K Programs operate under Bright From The Start: The Department of Early Care and Learning and follow their rules and regulations.
