To be eligible for preschool (also referred to as “Pre-K”) at IPS, students must be 4 years old before Sept. 1, 2016. Families must live in the IPS district and provide their own transportation to school. Pre-K seats are assigned by lottery selection, and the lottery application window is open until Jan. 25, with lottery selection set for late February. Once lottery assignments are complete, remaining Pre-K seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
