  • Voluntary Prekindergarten (VPK) is a free, state-funded program that prepares children for kindergarten. To participate, children must be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1 of the school year they are participating. Families can apply for this school year or next school year.

This opportunity is only available for families who have not yet used their VPK Certificate of Eligibility (voucher) at a VPK program. Seats are available on a first come, first served basis. The district is accepting applications now.
