CCISD making plans to expand Pre-K to full day format

Calhoun County ISD is making plans to expand its Pre-Kindergarten program to a full day format to better serve early childhood learners for long-term academic success.

The district’s decision to expand its previously-offered half day format to a full day format aligns with legislation recently-approved to fund full day Pre-K programs for low-income or other qualifying students.

Students who do not qualify for the state-funded service may still enroll for CCISD’s full day Pre-K program. Tuition will apply for those students. The tuition rate has not yet been set for the 2019-2020 school year, but rates are expected to be competitive with other private preschool providers in the area, perhaps in the $75 - $90 per week range. The exact tuition rate and other details will be shared at a later date.

For now, Calhoun County ISD is asking families to register, or confirm their previous registration, for full day Pre-K during the 2019-2020 school year, so that staff and resources are planned for and available.

Registration and eligibility:

  1. Families who previously registered for CCISD Pre-K earlier this year should make contact with the campus they registered with to confirm or decline their participation in the full day program.
  2. Families who did not register for CCISD Pre-K earlier this year, but who now are interested in signing up for the full day program, may visit their campus or the CCISD District Office to register.
  3. Registration, or previous registration confirmation, is scheduled for June 17 – 27 at elementary campuses across the district.
  4. Students who qualify under the Texas Education Agency’s guidelines are eligible for the state-funded service at no additional charge. Eligibility requirements are posted on the Texas Education Agency’s website: 
    https://tea.texas.gov/ece/eligibility.aspx
  5. Students who do not qualify for the state-funded service may still enroll for CCISD’s full day Pre-K program. Tuition will apply.
  6. A tuition discount is being considered for children of Calhoun County ISD employees, who are ineligible for the state-funded enrollment.

For more information about Calhoun County ISD’s transition to a full day Pre-K program, registration, student eligibility or tuition, please contact any elementary campus across the district. 

Students enrolled in CCISD’s Pre-K program are eligible for the typical district offerings, including bus transportation and school meals.
