Alamogordo Public Schools is pleased to announce the expansion of our four-year-old Pre-K program through an initiative driven by Governor Michelle Lujan-Grisham and funded by the New Mexico Public Education Department. The expansion of the Pre-K program will increase the number of children who may receive early intervention through full-day services.

Alamogordo Public Schools will continue to offer half-day developmental preschool for children three years of age (prior to September 1st) who have been identified as having a developmental delay or disability.

Limited enrollment will be available for full-day four-year-old preschool students based upon New Mexico Pre-K eligibility requirements including age (four prior to 12:00 a.m. September 1st), screening results, and residence within the attendance zone of a Title I School. New Mexico Pre-K is a voluntary program for children four years of age.

Registration for four-year-old Pre-K is scheduled for July 10, 2019, at Desert Star Elementary from 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. After that date, registration will be held at the Learning Services Building, Bldg. B (located at the APS Administration Complex, 1211 Hawaii Ave.). Readiness screenings will be conducted on-site during registration and is required as part of the enrollment process. Required documents for registration are birth certificate, shot records and proof of residency. (Proof of residency can be a current utility bill, lease or rental agreement, mortgage payment, tax bill, voter registration or military orders establishing residency on a local military base.  Proof of residency is mandatory to determine the student’s correct school attendance zone.)
