ELC School Attendance Zone
Charles County Public Schools will expand Prekindergarten slots at the Early Learning Center, La Plata (ELC) beginning in the 2023-2024 school year.
Click here to read the press release for more information. Please be advised that the ELC has a catchment zone for attendance. Please view the documents below to see if your street has been designated in the catchment zone for Prekindergarten. Students eligible for Prekindergarten who live in these designated areas will attend the ELC instead of their home zoned school for Prekindergarten only. Students in these areas cannot opt out to attend another school, nor can other students opt in to the ELC. First priority will be given to applicants who meet the Tier I qualifications. Transportation will be provided for students enrolled at the ELC. Students who complete Prekindergarten at the ELC will transfer to their home zoned school for kindergarten.
