Paper-based applications for Pre-k will be available at all elementary schools and Central Office at 1400 W. Spring St. in Cookeville.
Once the application is completed, call Central Office at 526-9777 to schedule an individual enrollment meeting to complete the 
enrollment process. You will need to bring all required documentation, including your application, with you.

In order to be eligible for the Voluntary Pre-K program, children should be four years old on or before August 15, 2022.

ELIBIGILITY
Enrollment is based upon a child’s eligibility as identified in TVA- 49-6-101-104. First priority students are those identified as economically disadvantaged. This identification is based on income levels set each year by the Department of Health and Human Services. Other enrollment eligibilities include: children with disabilities, children identified as English Language Learners, who are in state custody, or those identified as educationally at-risk due to neglect or abuse.

If space continues to be available after placing all eligible four-year-old children, income-eligible three-year-old children may be considered for placement in any of our classrooms across the district. The school system would be looking specifically at placing three-year-old children that turn four between August 16 and December 31, 2022.

The Voluntary Pre-K classes participate in the Putnam County School System’s Child Nutrition Services, offering children breakfast and lunch. Some of the Pre-K program sites also offer extended care for working parents before and after school.

*REMINDER* Any students attending Pre-K will register for Kindergarten based on the student’s residential address and not on the school of Pre-K enrollment. Zoning policies apply to Kindergarten-12th Grade students.
