We are excited that you are taking the step to give your child a great start!  Our school district partners with KCEOC to serve as many preschool-aged (3-4 year old) at-risk and/or disabled students as possible.

Preschool Screenings

Preschool screening is a free service offered by the Knox County Public Schools in collaboration
with the KCEOC Head Start Program and is one way of locating and identifying preschool age
children with special needs or are considered at-risk. Children ages 3 or 4 on August 1, may
be eligible for Head Start and/or Preschool.


Each family wishing to enroll their child in the preschool program must complete an application.  Parents will complete one application for both programs, KCPS or KCEOC headstart.
