We must have all of the documents before your child can be assigned to a classroom.
Immunizations must be up to date before your child can be assigned to a classroom.
Pre-Kindergarten eligibility is based on income, a parent being active in the military, or if a child is or ever has been in foster care. Proof of income for the entire month of March, such as check stubs, or if you are self-employed a 2013 W-2 Form, etc, military identification, or legal paperwork from the foster care system will be required. Proof of income for the entire month of July must also be verified again in August.
No Child Left Behind
In the Spring of 2012, the former student assessment standardized test, TAKS, was replaced with the more rigorous, STAAR. "STAAR will represent a more unified, comprehensive assessment program that wil incorporate more rigorous college and career readiness standards," a report from the Texas Education states. In just a few weeks, students across the state of Texas will once again be taking the STAAR test.
How can you as a parent help your student prepare for the STAAR test?
1) Attendance - Make sure your student is on time and in school EVERYDAY
2) Good Health - Make sure your students gets good: Breakfast, Sleep, and Exercise
3) Practice - The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has STAAR released questions on their website you can use for understanding or reinforce material.
