Lottery Sign-Up and Pre-K Online Registration


Gainesville City Schools is honored to offer 12 lottery funded Georgia Pre-Kindergarten Program classes, two classrooms per elementary school, throughout the district. The Pre-Kindergarten program is funded by the Georgia State Lottery, governed by Bright from the Start. The GCSS 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.

The GCSS Pre-Kindergarten Program helps children become independent, self-confident, enthusiastic learners. Participation in the program encourages children to develop good habits and daily routines. It encourages teachers to adopt child centered instructional practices based on the interests and the skill levels of each child.
