4K (Pre-K) Screenings for 2018-2019 School Year

The School District of Oconee County will hold 4K (Pre-K) screenings on the following dates:

  • February, 23, 2018

  • April 19, 2018

  • April 20, 2018

  • April 21, 2018

  • April 23, 2018

  • April 24, 2018

Parents should schedule a screening appointment for any child that will be 4 years of age on or before    September 1, 2018.

Screening appointments can be obtained beginning January 22 by calling 864-886-4503.  

The location for all screenings will be Oconee Academy, 177 Razorback Lane, Walhalla, SC 29691.

Parents should be prepared to bring the following items to the child’s screening appointment:

  • Child’s state issued (long form) birth certificate

  • Child’s social security card

  • Child’s Medicaid card or parent/guardian Proof of Income

(If your child does not receive Medicaid, proof of income for both parent(s)/guardian(s) will be required. This includes step-parents if they assume responsibility. Proof of income can be W2 forms, income tax forms, or pay stubs.)

  • Driver’s license or identification card of parent(s)/guardian(s)

  • Proof of residency (a utility bill with parent/guardian’s name and home address or a lease agreement)

  • Child’s immunization form or Religious Exemption Certificate (provided by the Health Department)

  • Legal documentation as it pertains to the child (such as custody, court, safety plans, etc.), if applicable

Due to the district’s limited number of 4K (Pre-K) programs, screening does not ensure a child’s placement in a 4K (Pre-K) program. However, a child cannot be placed in a 4K (Pre-K) program unless he or she is screened.  

Children who meet eligibility requirements can attend 4K free, as long as space is available.  If openings are available after all eligible children have been placed, there may be an option for fee-based students to attend 4K.
