Newton County School System will open a second Pre-Kindergarten Class at the Newton College and Career Academy effective January, 27, 2014. Registration will be held by appointment only at the Newton County Board of Education offices located at 2109 Newton Drive NE, Covington, Georgia 30014 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Parents may call Ms. Velinsie Burden in the Curriculum and Instruction Department at 770-787-1330 ext. 1268 to make an appointment. Only twenty-two slots are available for this Pre-Kindergarten class and those slots will be filled on a first come-first served basis.

Children must be four (4) years old on or before September 1, 2013 to qualify for enrollment in the Pre-Kindergarten class at Newton College and Career Academy. Only custodial parents and legal guardians may register a child for Pre-K.  In order to register a child, parents should bring a certified birth certificate and two proofs of residence/address—one from each of the two categories below:


                Category 1: Electric, gas, garbage, or water bill in the name of the person enrolling the child.




Category 2: Current lease, rental agreement, or mortgage statement from the purchase of a home.

Telephone bills, mortgage payment books, post office addresses, car licenses, credit cards, and Medicaid cards will not be accepted as proof of residence. If the child does not live with one or both parents, guardianship or custody documents must be presented. Should the child and parent/guardians live with someone else and as a result does not have a proof of address in his/her name, a Statement of Legal Residence/Affidavit of Parent/Guardian is needed.  Bring the affidavit completed, signed and notarized, along with the two proofs of residence in the name of the person who owns the property. 

In addition to the birth certificate and proofs of residence, parents must also bring the child’s social security card; the Eye, Ear, Dental (EED) Screening Form #3300 (if the child has reached age 4); and Immunization Record Form #3231. Both forms may be obtained from a doctor or the Newton County Health Department. If there is no social security card, a waiver may be signed at the time of registration. Please check with your doctor or the local health department for new immunization requirements.

For more information on the new Pre-Kindergarten class being offered at the Newton College and Career Academy, parents may call Ms. Velinsie Burden at 770-787-1330 ext. 1268. As stated previously, the class will begin on Monday, January 27, 2014.
