District Universal Pre-kindergarten Program
Warren Street Elementary School
GJSD's Universal Pre-K program:
Greater Johnstown School District's Universal Pre-kindergarten
program addresses instructional components, cognitive
skills, social and emotional development and the physical
skills of youngsters. Children must be four years old by
on or before December 1
and reside in the Johnstown School District to
eligible. The program does not
require income eligibility. For an application packet, please call the Pre-kindergarten office at
(518) 762-3715 or click on the appropriate link below
(note that, because of the number of pages, retrieving
the document may take a few moments).
The Residency Form from the packet must be completed and
brought to Alice Sise, Business Manager, at the
Johnstown School District Office, 1 Sir Bills Circle,
together with proof of your residency. If you currently
have a child enrolled in the GJSD, you do not need to
complete this form. Once your residency has been verified,
you must return the completed application to Warren Street
Universal Pre-kindergarten is open to children residing in
the school district who are four years old on or before
December 1 of the current school year. Income eligibility
is not a factor and all families are encouraged to apply.
Up to 18 children are allowed in each session. At this
time, 72 children from the Johnstown School District may
be enrolled in the program.
The State Education Department requires the district to
hold a pre-kindergarten lottery each year to ensure access
and opportunity for all families.
If more than 72 applications are received for the 2011-12
Johnstown School District program, a lottery will be held
on Friday, June 10, 2011. If more students apply for
enrollment than the grant funding provides for, a waiting
list will be established, based on the date the
application was received.
Student applications will continue to be accepted beyond
the June 10 date.
The staff at Johnstown Pre-K consists of two teachers and
two teacher aides.
Pre-K has a morning and and afternoon session and follows the Greater Johnstown School District calendar.
