Tuition-based kindergarten registration information

The Evesham Township Public School District will again be offering a tuition-based full-day kindergarten program for the 2013–2014 school year.

The curriculum used in this program is aligned to what is currently being offered in the half-day program; however, extends early reading and math concepts, language development, fine and gross motor skills, related arts and social skills.

The full-day session will be held in five locations, DeMasi, Jaggard, Marlton, Rice and Van Zant Elementary Schools.

A minimum of 15 students per classroom is required in order for a session to be implemented.

There will also be a maximum number of students per classroom of 20.

The cost for the program is $5,000 for the year, and includes transportation for all families living within Evesham’s bus zones.

In order to be considered for admission into this program, there are three requirements that must be met:
• Families must be residents of Evesham Township
• Students must be 5 years of age on or before Sept. 30.
• Students must have up-to-date immunizations

Anyone interested in enrolling their child in one of our classes should complete an application, which can be found on our district website at evesham.k12.nj.us, and return it along with a non-refundable application fee of $50 on or before Friday, March 8, 2013 to: Evesham Township Public Schools, Office of Curriculum and Instruction, 25 South Maple Ave., Marlton, NJ 08053.

As applicants are received, district personnel will assign a tracking number to each child who submitted an application.
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available slots, a lottery will be held on Friday, March 15, to determine entry into the program.

Applicant families will be notified of their application status by mail following the lottery, no later than Friday, March 22.
Those offered enrollment will receive an acceptance form that must be completed and returned by Friday, April 5. Failure to return this form by the deadline shall constitute a declination of enrollment.

Applicants not initially offered admission will receive written notification and be assigned a place on a waiting list, based on the lottery drawing sequence. Openings subsequently arising shall be filled from the waiting list in the order determined by the lottery.
