Welcome to Maxwell Elementary Pre-Kindergarten site. We gladly serve 80 students in four classrooms through our program which is at 100% ZERO cost to our parents through our Bright From the Start Grant. We select our class rosters through a lottery system so that each child who applies to our lottery has an opportunity to be drawn through our number drawing system. This process begins in  February of the year in which your child would potentially enter Pre-K.
To Participate: children must be four years of age on or before September 1 of the school year and must be a resident of McDuffie County. If a child is not served in a public or private PK program as a four year old, then the child may be eligible to attend the Pre-K Program as a five year old. 
REQUIRED DOCUMENTS to enroll are in the attachment BELOW.

Documentation for Homeless Students – Homeless students, as defined by the McKinney-Vento Act, shall be enrolled immediately with full participation in school activities, regardless of whether required documentation can be provided at the time of enrollment. The designated employee responsible for care of homeless students shall assist the person enrolling the homeless student or the unaccompanied youth in acquiring the necessary documents for enrollment in accordance with the requirements of the state enrollment rule and the Act.

“The School District, in its enrollment procedures, requirements and process does not and will not discriminate based on race, color, national origin, or immigration status.”
