application process
Application Process
  • Section 3602-e of Education Law requires that school districts must establish a process to select eligible children to receive UPK services on a random basis when there are more eligible children than can be served in a given school year.
  • Applications for eligible children will be selected by lottery, if there are more applicants than program spots.
  • Applicants not initially accepted into the program will be placed on a waiting list. Special requests may also be placed on a waiting list.
