Pre-K Early Registration

Students must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2024, to be eligible to attend pre-K in CCSD for the 2024-25 school year. Students are initially placed into pre-K classes based on the residential attendance zone of the legal parent or guardian. 

Students who are registered during the early registration period will be entered into the CCSD Pre-K Lottery, and families will receive an official letter via U.S. mail by April 15 notifying them of class placement or waitlist. For registration after Feb. 9, seats will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Kindergarten Early Registration

Students must be 5 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2024, to be eligible to attend kindergarten in CCSD next school year.

The early registration period is for students who will be new to CCSD next school year. Registration will remain open throughout the year, but families are encouraged to take advantage of the early period if able.
