for the Core Knowledge Pre-K Program
The selection process will include the following:
- Determine the number of spaces available at each CK/PK campus
- Sort complete/incomplete application packets. Incomplete packets will not be eligible to be included in the lottery.
- Number/categorize completed applications based on parent or legal guardian's:
- Campus of choice
- District residents and/or District
- Non-district applicants
Note: Child will not be eligible for placement on a campus that is not marked on the application.
Applications received after the deadline will not be eligible for the lottery and will be placed on a waiting list. As space becomes available, families will be contacted and offered a space based on their application.
Hold lottery for selection of student spaces. One number per family. In the event a number is drawn for a family of multiples (twins, triplets, etc.) or multiple pre-k aged children, individual child will fill a space.
If the last number drawn belongs to a family of multiples, the parent will be given the choice to assume the last spot with one child and place the remaining sibling(s) on a waiting list, or place all children on another available campus. (One lottery number will be assigned per family.)
Campuses will be filled with first round lottery selection from applicants who are district residents and/or HEB ISD employees. A second round lottery will be used to fill remaining openings for applicants who are non-district residents.
Notify parents by letter regarding acceptance for program or of placement on a waiting list.
Accept first month's tuition fee ($650) of those placed in a program. Child's spot will be forfeited to next available candidate if letter of acceptance and tuition fee are not received by designated date. Once the child has been accepted for placement, they will not be transferred to another campus.
List of applicants will be maintained for reference through school year. As openings occur in program, referring to the waiting list in order, CK/PK Administrative Office will notify parents as soon as possible.
