Special Needs Preschool

    Our Preschool Special Education Request for Assistance process is available to students, who reside within the FCS boundaries.  Students can participate in this process from the time they are nearing their 3rd birthday through the summer before they are age eligible for Kindergarten. 

    We provide service to students found eligible for Special Education according to GA Department Of Education eligibility criteria.  Our educational supports are offered in an FCS building or out in the community, depending on your child's needs.  These supports range from full time Preschool Special Education classes to intermittent services such as speech or occupational therapies on a weekly basis, or even annual services such as audiological evaluations. 

    All services are provided free of charge to students residing within the FCS district.  If you have additional questions about our services, please contact our office at 470-254-0404. 


    Out of District IEP or Eligibility

    (If your child already has a Special Education eligibility or IEP from another school district, you do not need to go through this process.  Please contact your neighborhood elementary school and ask to speak with their Instructional Support Teacher.)
