STAFF REPORT :::

The Griffin-Spalding County School System (GSCSS) is now accepting online enrollment applications for new pre-kindergarten students for the 2020-2021 school year. Students must be four-years-old on or before Sept. 1, 2020 and reside in Spalding County to be eligible for the GSCSS Pre-K Program.

Parents or guardians of prospective GSCS Pre-K students can register their child online at http://tinyurl.com/gscsregistration using any device with an internet connection such as a computer, cell phone, tablet and Chromebook.

Upon completing the online registration, parents and guardians must print and bring their confirmation page or the registration number along with required documents for Pre-K registration to the bus ramp located on Poplar Street – across from Memorial Stadium – from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday, April 20, April 27 or May 4 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. A list of these required documents can also be found online at:

All parents and guardians should make copies of documents required for registration, noting that documents submitted for registration will not be returned. If the paper registration is completed, parents and guardians may drop off the required documents from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 20, April 27 or May 4.

All GSCSS staff distributing or collecting Pre-K registration packets and documents will follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance of wearing protective masks and social distancing.

Georgia’s Pre-K Program is a state lottery-funded educational program for all age eligible four-year-old children in Georgia, with the goal of preparing children for success in kindergarten and later school years. The GSCS Pre-K program operates on the regular school system calendar for the length of a typical school day.

GSCSS has a total of 21 Pre-K classes, holding a maximum of 22 students per class. All GSCSS elementary schools have at least one Pre-K class. For students to be included in the lottery drawing, they must be completely registered by May 4. Students registered after May 4 will be placed on a waiting list.
