Clarendon Three 4K Guidelines 


All pre-registered students will be evaluated for enrollment into 4K at Walker Gamble. Pre-registration does not guarantee enrollment in the WGE 4K program.  This applies to both in-district and out-of-district students.  To be considered, children must turn four-years-old on or before September 1, 2016.  Students who do not live in Clarendon 3 need to pre-register, but will not be considered for the two state-funded Child Development Education Program (CDEP) classes over an in-district student.  Four year old screening will take place May 27th – June 1st.

Slots for the CDEP 4K program will first be filled with students who qualify for Medicaid or free and reduced lunch.  Then students with academic/developmental needs will be added.  All screened children will be ranked and those most at-risk for school success will receive CDEP placement.  Any child who is not a CDEP qualifying student will be considered for a tuition based (non-state funded) 4K class.  If space allows, non CDEP qualifying students may enroll in the non-tuition class.  Pre-registered in-district students will be given priority over out-of-district students.  Children of Clarendon 3 employees living outside the district will be considered in-district.  Grandchildren of Clarendon 3 employees living outside the district will not be considered in-district, but will qualify for the in-district rate for the 4K tuition class.  In the event that more than 20 in-district students are eligible for the tuition 4K class, students will be selected by lottery.  Tuition costs for the non-CDEP 4K class will be $95/month ($950/year) for Clarendon 3 residents and $157.50/month ($1575/year) for out-of-district 4K students.  Tuition can be paid upfront or on a monthly installment plan. This tuition cost is in addition to regular Walker Gamble registration fees.

Notification of 4K acceptance will be mailed to parents late June / early July.  Students who register after student evaluations and initial class placement will be placed as space allows.
