PPS Pre-Kindergarten Applications

  • PPS Pre-Kindergarten is available to any child 3 or 4 years of age by September 1st, 2023 that resides within the PPS boundary.

  • Program Eligibility: Our Pre-Kindergarten programs are funded through Preschool Promise, Preschool for All and Head Start grants with priority populations including:

    • Children from families affected by homelessness, incarceration, substance abuse, mental health issues, and domestic violence; 
    • Migrant and refugee families;
    • Children who speak languages other than English; 
    • Children who experience developmental delays and disabilities; 
    • Children of teen parents or military families; 
    • Children living in foster care;
    • Children enrolled in a Title VI Indian Education Program or organization.

    Applicants who do not meet these priority enrollment criteria may be placed in a waiting pool for enrollment consideration in late summer or early fall. Some PPS Pre-K and Head Start programs are income-restricted and others give priority to family incomes below the Oregon self-sufficiency index.
