Lexington One taking applications for 2013–2014 4K program | News
Lexington County School District continues to accept applications for its 4-year-old kindergarten program next year, the 2013–2014 school year.
Parents or guardians with children 4 years old on or before September 1, 2013, may apply to have their child screened for the half-day 4-year-old kindergarten program. Screening takes place the week of May 27 and the week of June 3.
To participate in this screening, parents/guardians must apply for the half-day 4-year-old kindergarten program prior to May 30, 2013, at the elementary or primary school your child would normally attend.
Parents/guardians should bring their child’s official birth certificate with the parent’s names on it (not a wallet card or short certificate) and a completed South Carolina Certificate of Immunization to the school for which their child would normally attend.
For proof of residency, please bring a current electric bill/statement showing your name and home address within the district and your S.C. driver’s license or other state or federal photograph identification. If you are unable to produce any of the documents listed above, please contact the school or the Office of Student Services at 803-821-1029 to discuss alternative documentation that may be acceptable.
Parents will be notified of the date and time their child will be screened for the program. Students must participate in the screening to be considered for the program. The screening uses fun activities such as identifying pictures, drawing and interacting with trained teachers.
Once the screening is complete, parents receive notification by telephone or by mail of the results and if their child was accepted into the 4K program.
Students accepted in the program attend either a morning session (7:40–10:15 A.M.) or an afternoon session (11:45 A.M.–2:15 P.M.)
If you have questions regarding the 4K program, please contact the elementary or primary school in your area or call Karyn Ward or Johnnie Boatwright with the Lexington One Instructional Services Office at (803) 821-1065.
