The St. Clair County Board of Education and the Alabama Office of School Readiness with the support of the Alabama Department of Early Childhood Education continue to operate and offer quality Pre-K classrooms in the St. Clair County School System for the 2018-2019 academic year. We are very proud to announce that we now have a total of 12 Pre-Kindergarten classes in St. Clair County. You should only register your child for the Pre-K programs that they can actually attend.  With the increased availability of Pre-K classrooms we are no longer able to offer the courtesy of transferring children among classes after the random drawings have been completed.


Online Pre-Registration for next year’s 2018-2019 St. Clair County Pre-K classrooms at Ashville Elementary, Springville Elementary, Odenville Elementary, Moody Elementary, Ragland High and Margaret Elementary schools will be available on our district website  beginning Monday, January 22nd. They are also available at this link:  Pre-Registration forms must be completed online by Friday, March 2nd. If you have any questions please email  Applicants must be four years of age on or before September 2, 2018. 


We will draw 16 students for each classroom. Then the remaining students will continue to be drawn and numbered in the order they are drawn. This will be the order of the waiting list as new students are added to a classroom.  Our goal is to have 18 students in each classroom, but we have to make sure we can meet the needs of all students before we add. NOTE: If a program has multiple birth siblings (twins, triplets, etc.) all names should be placed in the drawing separately. If one, but not all, multiple birth siblings are drawn before the classroom cap at 16, the drawing should cease at this point and the 1 or 2 multiple birth siblings should be added to the classroom roster to reach full classroom enrollment.


The tuition for the class will be $25.00 per week plus cost of lunch if applicable. The hours of the Pre-K programs are from 7:30-2:00.  Pre-Kindergarten students are not eligible to ride a school bus with different age students, therefore parents/guardians are responsible for transportation to and from school.  Pre-K students are eligible for a modified after school care service til 3:15. There is an extra fee for this service if needed.  


 The 2018-2019 Pre-K classes will be selected by a random selection drawing as follows…


Odenville Elementary -March 6th, 6:00 in the OES lunchroom

Springville Elementary-March 8th, 6:00 in the SES library

Moody Elementary- March 13th, 6:00 in the MES lunchroom

Margaret Elementary -March 15th, 6:00 in the MAES lunchroom

Ashville Elementary, March 20th, 6:00 in an AES classroom

Ragland High School, March 23rd, 6:00 in the library



Parents/legal guardians must bring the child’s Immunization Form (Blue Form), a copy of parent’s driver’s license, a copy of child’s social security card, a copy of the child’s birth certificate, and proof of St. Clair County residency to the lottery. 


A short orientation will follow immediately after the drawing for the parents of the students that are drawn for the class. If you have any questions please call Jan Darnell-Bailey at 205-594-7131 ext. 2215 or email
