If qualifying based on income, proof of income in the form of a current paycheck stub; current pay envelope; letter from employer stating gross wages paid and how often paid; unemployment, workers' compensation or disability payment stub; or TANF, AFDC, or food stamp case number; must be provided at registration. (Self-employed individuals may provide their 2021 income tax return or business or farming documents such as ledger books or self-issued paycheck stub.)

Pre-Kindergarten Registration Steps
  1. Gather the required documents.
  2. Schedule an appointment beginning on May 4.  
  3. Parents who anticipate that their child may qualify due to limited English will need to bring their child to registration for language testing.  Parents may want to bring documentation that helps their child qualify through other means (such as income) in case their child does not qualify by language due to language test scores.

Pre-kindergarten registration will not be finalized until documents are submitted and verified.
