Space Still Available in Batavia Universal Pre-K Program
Written by Dan Fischer on June 3, 2019
The Batavia City School District (BCSD) is continuing to offer the Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) Program for young students in the 2019-2020 school year. UPK provides an opportunity for four-year-old children, at no cost to their families, to be involved in developmentally appropriate educational classes that, following the regular school calendar, meet Monday through Friday during the school year. Since its implementation, the District has provided a half-day program, with a choice of either morning or afternoon sessions.
Children who are residents of the District and who are four (4) years of age on or before December 1, 2018, are eligible to apply. Applications are available at the District Business Office in the administrative wing of Batavia High School (260 State Street). They also can be downloaded from the District’s website, www.bataviacsd.org, where, under the “Parents” tab, there is a link labeled “Registering Your Child For School.” That page contains general information as well as a link, in the left column, specifically for UPK registration. The application should be returned as soon as possible to secure your child’s spot!
If you have questions about the UPK program please call the Curriculum and Instruction Office at 585-343-2480 x 1003.
