The parent/guardian will then be able to take the Certificate of Eligibility to an approved VPK community-based school or to an approved public school. The parent/guardian will submit the Certificate of Eligibility to the provider selected. Both parent/guardian and the provider sign in the appropriate places on the Certificate of Eligibility to indicate that the child has been enrolled in that school. The parent keeps the pink copy.
