I think it is happening at the end of Feb or early march.

Jersey City has a lot of schools and each one is unique so it's worth the effort to visit. You may be pleasantly surprised.

Does this matter if you can still only go to the school you're zoned for?

If your home school is a failing school then you can go to the Dept of early childhood education to see if you can get a transfer. They do not do this until summertime so there is nothing you can do. What I did was sign my son up for dual language program. I picked PS 30 which borders Bayonne almost, because I know all the downtown schools are inudated with requests for that program. We got in via lottery and I could not be happier with the school. Amazing teachers and staff!

I'm pretty sure you can't appeal your zone.

Join JC Moms Meetup... There's a huge repository of options for kids/schooling of all ages.

We are doing the JCPS pre-K program and think it's really good and perfect for a 3- and 4-year old.

My son will be entering Pre-K this fall and I come to find out that the school in our district is not the one I thought it was. Is there any way to register to a different school? (both schools are only a block from my residence and I happen to be right in the middle). Is there any way to make some sort of appeal to the boe?

Other options would be charter school (we entered the lottery for LCCS but ended up on the waiting list with a high number). Not sure what other good charter schools are around as I can't really find any other feedback online nor do we know any families that go to any other charter schools in JC.

Last option would be to look into private school in JC. Most of our friends who have had children moved out of JC just because of the school system and high crime rates but we're here to stay just because we can't see ourselves moving anywhere else. A lot has changed since I went to grammar school. Since when did finding the right school for your child become so difficult? lol
