Cocalico School District offers a pre-school program for eligible four-year-old children who live in the district. These classes are made possible through the Pennsylvania Pre-K Counts Grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) for 2012 - 2013. The grant program is designed to provide quality pre-Kindergarten programs for children determined to be most in need in our community.
How are children selected?
This program does not accept students on a first come, first serve basis. Students determined to be the most "at-risk" based on poverty level will be selected to participate in the program. Thirty four-year old children will be selected to participate in the program. Applications will be ranked based on level of need. Students must be four years old by September 1, 2012 in order to be considered for the program. A waiting list will be maintained throughout the school year. Applications will be accepted all year.
Who is eligible for PA Pre-K Counts?

|- are 4 years old and have not yet entered kindergarten; and

||or a family of four earning $69,150 or less). Verification of income will be required when applying
and a copy of your 2011 1040 Tax Form will need to be submitted.
