Murfreesboro City Schools
Ruth Bowdoin Preschool Program
Thank you for your interest in the Murfreesboro City Schools Preschool Program. We
are excited about the coming year. Our preschool classrooms will be located in
several schools for the 2015-2016 school year. The school locations for the
classrooms are tentative and will depend on space available. We will continue to offer
classrooms at our off site locations at Mercury Court, Oakland Court and Franklin
Heights. Children who reside within the Murfreesboro city limits and meet the
eligibility requirements, regardless of your child’s zoned school, may be placed in a
classroom based on location, zones, and proximity as long as space is available.
At this time all PreK classrooms are fully enrolled. However, we are accepting
applications for the waiting list as openings do occur. Please turn in completed forms
with required documentation at the Murfreesboro City Schools Central Office after
August 8th between the hours of 8:00 and 4:00. If a qualifying space becomes
available, you will be contacted at that time.
If you have questions, you may contact us by email at [email protected]

documentation when you return your application.

We will be keeping all the documentation. Please bring COPIES, not originals of bills, birth

Completed Application and Income Eligibility forms
Proof of your address. The only documentation that will be accepted is copy of an electric, water, or gas bill
with the parent’s name and the service address on it. These bills may be no more than 60 days old. If you
do not pay these bills, you must have a copy of your official lease in the parent/guardian’s name.
• Copy of Official Birth Certificate (not a mother’s copy). If your child was born in Tennessee, a birth certificate may
be obtained at the Rutherford County Health Department.
• Copy of your child’s Social Security card
* Copy of appropriate documentation to verify the information you provided on the Income Eligibility form from either
Part B or Part C. This documentation should include either your DHS letter confirming your child’s enrollment in a

•
•
* All applicants will be considered for additional services or slots provided or funded by partnering
agencies, therefore, we ask that you submit a W-2 or 2014 tax return in addition to state required
documents (or other supporting documents). Submitting these will expedite the processing of applications.
Why we require documentation to support your application:
*Only children who are 4yrs. old, but not yet 5, by Aug. 15, 2015 are eligible. A
birth certificate is the only documentation recognized by the state.
*Only children who live within the city limits of Murfreesboro are eligible for the
program. A utility bill, electric/gas/water, issued within the last 60 days are the
only documents accepted. If you do not pay utilities, we require a copy of a current
lease.
*In addition we require information on your family income. Please see the information
below excerpted from the website of the TN Dept. of Education:
Enrollment in the Voluntary Pre-K program is based upon a child’s eligibility as identified in TCA 49-6101─104. Available space in each school system is limited and is based on the funding awarded each year
through a grant process.
Enrollment Priority Requirements
Pursuant to state law 49-6-101: priority is given to students identified as economically disadvantaged/ low
income. This identification is based on income levels set each year by the Department of Health and
Human Services and used during the application process to determine income eligibility for enrollment.

I understand that I am required to provide transportation to and from preschool for my child every day. I
have read the instructions for the application process and understand that I must provide all necessary
documentation for my child’s application to be considered. I agree to comply with all regulations and
policies of the Murfreesboro City Preschool Program. I understand that I may be contacted by MidCumberland Head Start for selection into a partnership slot. I give my permission for Murfreesboro City
Schools to verify any information on the application, including income. I understand that acceptance into
this school is contingent upon my city residency. If I move outside the city limits during the school year, my
child will no longer be allowed to attend the preschool. I understand that unacceptable attendance may be
grounds for removal from the program.
