There is no registration fee for the program. However, upon enrollment, each child’s immunization record must be provided.

Acceptance for Chambers County children is strictly determined through a random drawing to be held on Friday, March 26, 2021, beginning at 9 a.m. CT at the Chambers County Board of Education office in LaFayette. Parents or guardians do not have to be present for the drawing. Notices of the results will be emailed beginning Friday, April 16, 2021.

When accessing the registration site, Parents will notice that the only two schools listed as choices are Huguley and Bob Harding-Shawmut, which is due to the way funding is apportioned for the program.

It is during the random drawing process that children will be assigned to other locations of choice according to availability. Therefore, it is suggested that parents pre-register for both schools listed on the website.

No child will be denied participation on basis of income, sex, race, color, national origin or disability.
