2020-21 Prekindergarten Online Registration

To register your child for the Prekindergarten program at Luling Primary School, click here.

 

The Luling Independent School District offers a pre-kindergarten program at Luling Primary School.  The Texas Education Code states that a school district shall offer pre-kindergarten classes if the district identifies 15 or more children who are eligible and are at least four years of age.  It is important that parents enrolling students in the pre-kindergarten program understand that the program is designed for instruction. The pre-kindergarten program should not be confused with a pick-up and drop off daycare program. Regular, steady attendance is required for all students and students enrolled in the pre-kindergarten program are subject to compulsory attendance laws.  Students who are frequently absent, late, or checked out early may be subject to truancy prevention measures, including referral to court. 

 

A child is eligible for enrollment in a LISD pre-kindergarten class if the child is at least four years of age on September 1st of the current school year, resides within the school district, and meets the following eligibility requirements:

 

  1. Unable to speak and comprehend the English language; or
  2. Economically disadvantaged, which means that a student is eligible to participate in the national free or reduced price lunch program; or
  3. Homeless, as defined by 42 USC § 11302, regardless of the residence of the child, of either parent of the child or of the child’s guardian or other person having lawful control of the child; or
  4. The child of an active duty member of the armed forces of the United States, including the state military forces or a reserve component of the armed forces, who is ordered to active duty by the proper authority; or
  5. The child of a member of the armed forces of the United States, including the state military forces or a reserve component of the armed forces, who was injured or killed while serving on active duty; or
  6. Is or ever has been in the conservatorship of the Department of Family and Protective Services following an adversary hearing under Family Code 262.201.

 

A child who does not meet the above eligibility requirements is considered an ineligible student.

 

For the 2020-2021 school year, Luling ISD will serve students in the prekindergarten program based on the following guidelines:

 

  1. Students who meet the eligibility requirements above for prekindergarten will have first priority in the program.
  2. The prekindergarten program is intended to serve four-year-old students.  A child who is five years of age on September 1 of the current school year is not eligible for enrollment in a prekindergarten class.  The Texas Education Agency takes the position that children who reach age five on September 1 are most appropriately served in kindergarten and that the law specifically established the prekindergarten program to serve students who have not reached age five.  Based on this guidance, the LISD prekindergarten program will only serve four-year-old students during the 2020-2021 school year.
  3. If space is available after eligible students have been identified and scheduled, ineligible students will be enrolled based on the results of a lottery.  The combined enrollment of eligible and ineligible students will be capped at 18 in each class.  This offers flexibility to the campus and allows the campus to serve eligible students who enroll during the school year.

 

Prekindergarten Selection Process for Ineligible Students:

 

In an effort to conduct a fair selection process, Luling ISD will hold a lottery system for the 2020-2021  school year.  Student identifying numbers will be drawn and students will be enrolled according to the number of spaces available not to exceed 18 eligible and ineligible students in a class.  If space becomes available for ineligible students during the school year, identifying numbers will be redrawn.
