PreK Students will go to Half-Day Beginning January 2019

 

10/29/2018

We would like to notify you that PreKindergarten Students will be moving to half-day PreK beginning next semester, January 2019, due to the district's current financial situation.  Currently, the State of Texas only funds half-day PreK and the remaining half-day has been subsidized by the District.  This has become difficult for our District to sustain financially. It is our desire to one day return to a full-day prekindergarten program and, ultimately, that the State of Texas would recognize the value of a full-day PreK program by funding it in its entirety.  This was an extremely difficult decision, but we are committed to ensuring that our PreK program continues to be a program that allows our students to continue thriving through high-quality instruction and staff.  Rest assured that the new design of the program will meet all mandatory requirements set forth by the Texas Education Agency.  Information has been sent home to our PreK parents with details about the restructuring of the program.
