Instructions for Parents of Students for the Tuition-Based Prekindergarten Program Process for 2019-2020 

STEP 1:

Determine whether your child may qualify for the state-mandated prekindergarten program at no cost.

To be eligible for enrollment in the state-mandated pre-K program, a child must be four years of age on or before September 1st of the current school year, live in the district, and must:

• Be unable to speak and/or comprehend the English language; or

• Be educationally disadvantaged (qualify for free/reduced lunch); or

• Be homeless, as defined by 42 U.S.C. Section 11302; or

• Be the child of an active duty member of the armed forces of the United States; or

• Be the child of a member of the armed forces of the United States who was injured or killed

  while serving on active duty; or

• Currently is or ever have been in the conservatorship of the Department of Family and Protective

  Services.

Determine whether your child may qualify for the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD). PPCD is a program that serves children between the ages of three and five who have delays in the areas of speech, language, physical, social and/or emotional development. Eligible students attend PPCD program at no cost.

 

STEP 2:

Children who are four years old on or before September 20th of the current school year and who do not qualify for either the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) or the state-mandated prekindergarten program provided for qualifying students, as described above, are eligible to enroll in the tuition based prekindergarten program.

A parent may choose to send their child to any tuition-based campus in AISD; however, they must submit a transfer request for approval and must provide their own transportation.

Tuition-based prekindergarten will be offered at the following schools for school year 2019-20.

·      

Tuition-Based Prekindergarten: Allison, Baldwin, Blackshear, Boone, Brentwood, Brooke, Campbell, Casis, Cowan, Cunningham, Davis, Doss, Galindo, Govalle, Guerrero Thompson, Gullett, Hill, Jordan, Joslin, Kocurek, Mathews, Menchaca, Metz, Mills, Odom, Ortega, Overton, Palm, Patton, Pecan, Pillow, Pleasant Hill, Uphaus, Williams, Wooten, Zavala, Zilker

·      

Dual Language Tuition-Based Prekindergarten (English-Spanish except as noted):   Becker, *Blanton, Casey, Dawson, Maplewood, Menchaca, *Overton, *Pecan Springs, *Perez, Reilly, Ridgetop, Sanchez, *Summitt (Vietnamese), Sunset Valley, *Travis Heights, Williams

·      

*These dual language campuses also offer an option for a non-dual language classroom as well.

 

  • TUITION DUAL LANGUAGE applications will be approved by the DL department not by the Pre-K department.  After the Tuition DL application is approved the packet will be forwarded to the Pre-K department to process payment information.

Contact the school in which you are interested to obtain additional information about the program and to secure a packet.  Tuition packets will be available beginning January 2, 2019 for school year 2019-20. If you are interested in Dual Language as well as the Tuition-Based Prekindergarten Program, a separate dual language application will be required and is available at the campus beginning January 7, 2019.

Initially there will be finite number of slots available at each tuition campus and AISD will hold a lottery to determine student placement. Class sizes in AISD are approximately 19:1. After all tuition positions have been filled, an official waiting list will be developed, and parents will be notified in the fall if space becomes available.

 

STEP 3:

COMPLETED packets and ALL required documents must be submitted to the campus NO LATER THAN the end of business on January 31, 2019. Completed packets submitted after this date may not be considered in the initial placement lottery. Packets received after the initial lottery deadline will be considered on a space available basis based on the date of receipt. Items needed for a complete packet are listed below.

 

Ø 

Completed Tuition-Based packet that includes:

§ 

Tuition-Based Parent Agreement Form

§ 

Transfer Request Form (if this is not your home school) must be submitted with the tuition packet

 

§ 

Student Registration and Data Verification Form (2018-19 SR290)

§

STEP 4:         

Submit all documents to the school no later than January 31, 2019.

 Priority consideration will be given to siblings, home school students, and AISD staff dependents.

*NOTE: If there are more students in a group than there is space, a lottery will be conducted. Acceptance and Wait List letters will be emailed to the email address you provided on the Tuition-Based Parent Agreement by March 15th if they were in the lottery, if not in the lottery process letters will go out by March 29th.  If your child is accepted, go to STEP 6. If your child is wait listed, go to STEP 5.

After the lottery, packets will continue to be taken. Accepted or wait list positions will be awarded on a space available basis.

 

STEP 5:

If your child is denied to the program due to lack of space, you will be given information as to his/her position on the waitlist.  You may call the campus or Early Childhood Dept. for information on space availability at another school. If you choose one of these other schools, your child will lose his/her position on the waitlist for the first school.

STEP 6:

When your child is accepted into the program, you will receive a Payment Option Form that needs to be returned with payment method selection. Note that there will be open registration at all elementary schools during the week of April 2, 2019. It is recommended that you complete, if not completed, the registration process at that time, but completion must be finalized by April 30, 2019 to be in the 2019-2020 tuition program. 

After acceptance into the Tuition-Based Prekindergarten program, you will receive a request from the Early Childhood Dept. in the AISD Central Office regarding your choice of payment terms.  This form will be emailed to you after you receive your acceptance letter into the Pre-K program and due prior to your child officially attending school for the fall. Your child will not be able to start without the form being returned via email or US mail.  All payments are handled at AISD’s Central Office location (AISD- Early Childhood, 1111 W 6th St. A-400, Austin TX 78703)
