Burlington Twp schools release Pre-K lottery information for 2019–2020 school year

The deadline to return the forms is 4 p.m., Feb. 13

From Burlington Township Schools:

The Burlington Township Board of Education will again offer an integrated Pre-Kindergarten program for the 2019–2020 school year. The number of available seats will be determined mid-January once budget projections are completed. Available seats will be for students in the Township who have reached their fourth birthday on or before Oct. 1, 2019. The three-year old program will be available for students in the Township who have reached their third birthday on or before Oct. 1, 2019. Selection for both programs will be by random lottery drawing for all students who complete and return the Pre-K Enrollment Agreement by 4 p.m., Feb. 13, 2019.

These forms may be downloaded from our website at www.burltwpsch.org, or by visiting the BOE Business Office which is located at 710 Jacksonville Rd. Hopkins Building door #16. Forms must be returned directly to the Business Office. Their office hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., or by arrangement. Actual student registration will occur following the lottery process.

Due to the budget constraints and no funding from the NJ Department of Education, the 2019–2020 Burlington Township School District Pre-K Program annual tuition fee for each student will be $1,550. Tuition will be waived for students who qualify for the “Free Lunch” Program. An annual tuition fee of $650, will be charged to general education students who qualify for the “Reduced Lunch” Program.

Both lotteries will be drawn at the Board of Education Work Session Meeting on Feb. 20, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

Please call (609) 387–3955 ext. 2067 if you have any questions.

We are also pleased to announce that the Y will be available to provide the wrap around program. You must contact them directly for further information.
