We will be starting Pre-School for the 2018-2019 school year.  There will be 2 levels, 3 and 4 years old.  They will each attend 1/2 day every day.

Should I:
1.  Set up a "New" school for just the 3 and 4 years olds. OR
2.  Just add those levels to my existing Elementary school and just adjust their FTE and Attendance?

If the answer is New school what do I use for the school number?  I.E. HS=780072001

Thank you for any guidance!

I would do a separate school so that they can have a bell schedule that more closely matches their schedule. Otherwise it's a mess.

Thank you Peggy.  What about the number?

You can use ...003.  Your superintendent will need to contact NDE and let them know that you will be setting up a new school so that once you have the school set up in PowerSchool, data submissions for your PK students will match the proper school at NDE for EdFi and NSSRS purposes.

If you want to keep the NDE location code the same as your elem school, you just need to add that as your Alternate School Number. Your state reports will use that instead of the number you use for PS School Number.

Our elem school is school # 3 in PS. I added my preschool using School Number as 103 with Alternate School Number 3. Our preschool is not a separate building/location but I wanted them separate for the same reasons as Peggy described.

OK!  Thank you all VERY much.  I think I've got it now.
