Georgia Lottery Funded Pre-K Classroom Survey
Pickens County Schools is asking for community input concerning the Georgia Lottery Funded Pre-K program. It is the desire of Pickens County Schools to have a Georgia Lottery Funded Pre-K classroom in every elementary school in the district. However, Pickens County Schools has NOT been awarded Pre-K classes to date. Taking this survey is a way for the district to assess the needs for this program in the community and is in no way intended to be considered a registration process for pre-k. Consequently, your input is VERY important to the district. Once again, the Pickens County School District is seeking community input on the possibilities of having Georgia Lottery Funded Pre-K classrooms in the elementary schools. Your input is very much appreciated.
