There are a few openings left, and so the Batavia City School District has extended the deadline to submit an application for participation in the Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program for the 2012-2013 school year.
UPK provides an opportunity for 4-year-old children to be involved in half-day, developmentally appropriate educational classes at no cost to their families. The district offers morning and afternoon programs at Jackson Primary School and partners with the Batavia YMCA to provide Pre-Kindergarten at the YMCA.
Children who are residents of the district, are 4 years of age on or before Dec. 1 and who are not enrolled in a special education program with the GV Educational Partnership are eligible to apply.
Letters/applications were mailed to all known eligible families, but also are available for pick-up at the administration building, by calling Julie Tybor at 343-2480, ext. 7516, and requesting that one be mailed, or on the district’s Web site: <http://towww.bataviacsd.org>, use the pull-down menu under “District,” click on the link for Curriculum and Instruction, then the link for Universal Pre-K Information.
Applications for the remaining openings will continue to be processed through early October and students placed in the order that they are received. Please return the completed application to the information/registration office (39 Washington Ave., Batavia, NY, 14020, Attention: Julie Tybor).
