Child Development Application Process
Applications for the child development program for the 2019-20 school year will be accepted in the spring. Specific details and application dates will be posted no later than March of 2019.
You must apply for the program and have your child screened at the elementary school in your attendance area, even if you plan to apply for a transfer request. Each child that is accepted into the child development program will be assigned a Snapcode for parents to use when completing online registration to attend school in the fall. Snapcodes are issued by the school.
The HCS School Finder can be used to locate the elementary school in your attendance area. When using the HCS School Finder, the layer icon on the top right corner will allow you to select the Elementary School Zones option.
Children must be four years old on or before September 1st of the school year to participate in the program. The child development program is an optional program with a limited number of available slots. **Please note that completing an application does not guarantee acceptance into the program.
The following documents are required to complete an application for the child development program:
- child’s legal birth certificate
- child’s shot record
- parents’ proof of income (2017 income tax return or child’s Medicaid card)
- proof of residency.
- The child’s social security card is requested, but is not required.
