Preschool (Non-ECFE) Contract Request/Acceptance Process

  • Contracts must be requested each subsequent school year. 

  • Families will be given a two-week window to request a contract.

  • Contracts will be assigned a priority level, based on their qualifications. Contract priority will be given if the parent/guardian has submitted a contract request during the established contract request window. 

  • Contracts will be accepted in order of priority. 

  • Contracts will be accepted on a space-available basis. If more contracts are requested than available in a specific program, a random computerized lottery, with no preference for contract request date, will be held.

  • Contracts are accepted by family/account. Once one student in a family has their contract accepted, all students in that family will also be accepted into the program. 

  • Contracts not approved will automatically be kept on a waiting list for consideration as space in the program becomes available. 

  • Contracts requested after the contract request window will be added to the bottom of the waitlist, regardless of priority qualifications.

Contract Request Window

Contract requests must be submitted during the established two-week window in order to receive priority acceptance.
