Universal Full-day Pre K4 Program
Mission CISD elementary schools offer a full-day pre-k program with no language or income requirements to four year olds. The district’s pre-k program offers dual-language instruction that can continue with the student through fifth grade, with teachers who meet standards for highly qualified designation. The Mission CISD pre-k programs also benefit from the district’s technology initiatives. Students to be registered for pre-k must turn four years of age prior to September 1, 2020.
Parents need to bring a valid form of identification (for the parent), the child’s birth certificate, child’s social security card (if available), child’s immunization records, and proof of residence within Mission CISD. While parents will be able to complete registration for their new pre-k student online, they will still need to bring in the required documentation to the campus. The Pre-K Round Up in February presents the perfect opportunity for that.
For online registration, go to the district website, www.mcisd.net and then click on the “Registration” link. From there information and links to the registration area of Student360 will be found.
Pre K3 Programs
Parents in the Mission Consolidated Independent School District interested in an early-childhood program have more options for easier access to services. Mission CISD is expanding the Pre K3 program to include all 14 of our elementary schools for the 2020-2021 school year. The Mission CISD Pre K3 program is a full-day program focused on early childhood development.
Students will be accepted on a first come-first served basis. Students must be 3 years of age as of September 1, 2020. Students must also meet Texas Education Agency eligibility requirements. The state requires students meet at least one of the following requirements:
- is unable to speak and comprehend the English language; or
- is educationally disadvantaged (which means a student eligible to participate in the
national free or reduced-price lunch program... guidelines can be found here); or
- is homeless, as defined by law, 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
- is 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 proper authority; or
- is 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
- is or ever has been in the conservator-ship of the Department of Family and Protective Services (foster care) following an adversary hearing held as provided by law; or
- is the child of a person eligible for the Star of Texas Award as: a peace officer; a firefighter, or an emergency medical first responder as each is defined in law.
Out-of-district students for Pre K3 will only be considered if the child already has a sibling enrolled in a Mission CISD school.
The applications for the 2020-2021 school year are available at the Mission CISD Central Office, 1201 Bryce Drive, Mission.
