Scheduling an Appointment:  

Go to Preschool Appointment Scheduling Software to schedule an appointment with a PACE staff member. The scheduling site will open at 9am on Monday, June 7, 2021. We would suggest testing the link above and making sure it opens on your computer, so you do not encounter any issues on Monday when scheduling begins.

Due to the high volume of people trying to schedule appointments at the same time, if you have issues accessing the site, please try multiple times.

Preparing for your Appointment:

During your appointment call, we will review your forms and documents to make sure everything is correct. If all forms and documents are in order, we will register you on the list for a preschool class. Placement is not guaranteed and will depend on the numbers of students we are allowed to enroll in each class at each school. You will be notified on or before August 6th if you received a placement.

  1. Please remember that these are phone appointments. Do not come to the Board of Education Building during your appointment time. A PACE staff member will call you using the number you enter when scheduling your appointment.
  2. Please be prepared for our call. We will call your number at your appointment time. If you do not answer, we will try again 5 minutes later. If you do not answer the second time, we will move to the next appointment and you will have to reschedule for a later date and time.
  3. We need to have your completed forms and documents prior to your appointment. You may drop-off your documents or mail them into our office. Please review the instructions on our website.
  4. Placement is on a first come, first serve basis and enrollment is limited.
