Eligible children include those who reside in the district AND who will be 4 years old on or before December 1, 2024. If you have an eligible child or know someone who has an eligible child, please share this information with them. Applications will be available beginning Thursday, January 25, 2024.

We will also hold a Parent Information Night on January 25, 2024, at Berea Elementary School. The doors will open at 6:30 PM with the presentation to begin promptly at 7:00 PM.

The UPK application period runs from January 25, 2024, through March 22, 2024, if you wish to be included in the lottery, but even if you don’t get your application in by March 22nd, we welcome your application anytime during the school year.
