Pre-K Registration for the 2020-2021 School Year

St. Clair County Board of Education Pre-Kindergarten Pre-Registration


The St. Clair County Board of Education and the Alabama Office of School Readiness with the support of the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education continue to operate and offer quality Pre-K classrooms in the St. Clair County School System for the 2020-2021academic year. We are very proud to announce that we now have a total of 19 Pre-Kindergarten classes in St. Clair County. You should only register your child for the Pre-K programs that they can attend.   District zoning requirements are in effect for this program.  Please register for the school in which you are zoned.  If you are unsure of the school zone in which you reside, please call the board office at 205-594-7131 or your local elementary school.

 Online Pre-Registration for next year’s 2020-2021 St. Clair County Pre-K classrooms at Ashville Elementary, Springville Elementary, Odenville Elementary, Margaret Elementary, Moody Elementary, Ragland High and  Steele Jr. High School schools will be available on our district website  and the Alabama Department of Early Childhood,  beginning Tuesday, January 15, 2020.  Pre-Registration forms must be completed online by Thursday, March 12, 2020 to be eligible for the random drawing.  Any registrations after this date will automatically be placed on the wait list.   Applicants must be four years of age on or before September 1, 2020.

 We will draw 16 students for each classroom.  The remaining students will continue to be drawn and numbered in the order they are drawn. This will be the order of the waiting list as new students are added to a classroom.  Our goal is to have 18 students in each classroom, but we must make sure we can meet the needs of all students before we add. NOTE: If a program has multiple birth siblings (twins, triplets, etc.) all names should be placed in the drawing separately. If one, but not all, multiple birth siblings are drawn before the classroom cap at 16, the drawing should cease at this point and the 1 or 2 multiple birth siblings should be added to the classroom roster to reach full classroom enrollment.

 The tuition for the class will be $25.00 per week plus cost of lunch if applicable. The hours of the Pre-K programs are from 7:30-2:00.  Pre-Kindergarten students are not eligible to ride a school bus with different age students; therefore parents/guardians are responsible for transportation to and from school.  We do not offer before or after school care for Pre-Kindergarten students. 

 The 2020-2021 Pre-K classes will be selected by a random selection drawing on Thursday, March 19, 2020, 6:00 p.m. at Odenville Middle School Auditorium for all Pre-Kindergarten classes in St. Clair County.

Parents/legal guardians must bring the child’s Immunization Form (Blue Form), a copy of parent’s driver’s license, a copy of child’s social security card, a copy of the child’s birth certificate, and proof of St. Clair County residency to the lottery.

 A short orientation will follow immediately after the drawing for the parents of the students that are drawn for the class. If you have any questions, please contact Melanie Stone at 205-594-7131 ext. 2284 or email .
