VPK Enrollment Procedure
Parents/Guardians are required to open an on line VPK account, complete an application and upload the proper documents. Once the application is reviewed, parents will receive the VPK certificate via e mail.
The parent/guardian will then be able to take the Certificate of Eligibility to an approved VPK community-based school or to an approved public school. The parent/guardian will submit the Certificate of Eligibility to the provider selected. Both parent/guardian and the provider sign in the appropriate places on the Certificate of Eligibility to indicate that the child has been enrolled in that school. Questions?
