If you have a child already in a school or in a dual language program, we do offer Sibling Preference to younger siblings at the school or program. In order to ensure that your younger child is in the same school or dual language progam, you must complete a Sibling Preference Form-English, Sibling Preference-Spanish, Sibling Preference-Arabic
Some of our schools do not have Pre-K programs or can't accomodate all the children in their community in their programs. Students in those schools can enroll in one of the Early Childhood programs that work with the district at no cost to the child's family. See the information on Contracted Childcase Centers for more information.
