Preschool Application Window Now Open. The Chesapeake Preschool Initiative (CPI) Office is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year! CPI is a FREE full-day program for children who will be four years old by September 30 and live in Chesapeake. The program is designed to give eligible children opportunities to create a firm educational foundation that can be used to achieve academic and social success. Acceptance into the program is determined on eligibility criteria and identified risk factors, not on a first-come, first-served basis. Risk factors include, but are not limited to; family income, level of parent/legal guardian education, housing concerns or homelessness, and special needs or disability. If you know a family with a child who may benefit from this program, please encourage them to apply and help us spread the word! Applications are available on our district preschool page.
