Unless your child was kicked out of tech district, then the district must let your child attend if you live in that district. What grade is your child? Preschool is completely different.

don't know. We filled out the paperwork for preschool and was told she would be put on a waiting list. We found out yesterday that some people we know that live in paragould school district got an acceptance for their child, for GCT. Since we live in the district I think our children should be accepted first.
Just asking

It depends on when u register. If u live n tech district then u get priority over psd.

You have to be sure on where you live, the people that live RIGHT BEHIND the tech Jr High building are NOT in Tech district. School busses won't go up there either and they are 10 feet away. Maybe if you wait, you might get your letter. But its depending on if you put your recommendation in first. Your friends might even know someone in there, that helps A LOT. I went to tech 1-12....You see that kind of stuff a lot.

Bull crap. We live in tech district, have 2 children in school already, and had our daughter on the list for almost 2 years and STILL didn't get in. I was very proactive on checking on it. Both GCT and Paragould preschools have a 2-3 year wait.... And I agree children in that district should get in first.

They have to be approved of school choice to go school out of the district they live in. Once you have school choice u are treated no different than someone that lives in the district. Pre-school is first come first serve.
