The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) is honored to offer 114 lottery funded Georgia Pre-Kindergarten Program classes in 76 sites throughout the district. The Pre-Kindergarten program is funded by the Georgia State Lottery, governed by Bright from the Start. The DCSD Pre-K program is an age appropriate instructional program that prepares students for a successful transition to kindergarten and beyond. In order for a child to be school ready, it means they are socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively prepared for success in kindergarten.

Please know that the 21-22 Pre-K lottery is now closed. The application process opened February 14 and closed March 12, 2021. If you did not get a chance to apply for the 21-22 lottery, please fill out the “waiting pool” application below.
