The Park Ridge Public School District is again offering Park Ridge residents an Integrated Preschool Program scheduled to start in September at the same time as the District’s 2015-2016 school year.  Two classes will be offered at West Ridge Elementary School; one in the morning, and one in the afternoon.
 
The Integrated Preschool Program differs from the other preschools in that it incorporates the education of general education preschoolers with children of the same age having special needs.  The classes are composed of general education children ages 3 and 4 and special education children.
 
To be eligible, a general education student must be three years of age on or before October 1, 2015, and toilet trained.  Only an application is necessary to enter the lottery.  However, any child selected for this Integrated Program is required to have a birth certificate, copy of immunization records and 3 forms of proof of residency prior to formal acceptance.
 
Tuition for each general education child is $3,000* for the ten-month program.  Each family that is accepted into the program will be required to pay $1,500 by June 1, 2015, and the second half, $1,500, will be due December 1, 2015.   (*Tuition is pending Board approval at April 20, 2015 meeting.  Final approved tuition amount will be included in notification to finalists in the lottery drawing.)
 
The Integrated Preschool Program will be held five days a week as part of the morning session and afternoon session at West Ridge Elementary School. 
 
Applications are available in the main office at West Ridge and East Brook Elementary Schools; the Park Ridge Middle/High School Main Office; by calling 201-573-6000 x1301 to request an application by mail; or click HERE to download a copy.  All completed, signed applications are due by Monday, April 20th. The lottery will be held on Wednesday, April 22nd.
 
Please contact Lisa Bernardo, Director of the Department of Special Programs & Student Services, at the same telephone number if you have any questions or need additional information.
