                                           March 29, 2011
      Dear Parent/Guardian:

      State legislation provides a half-day program for children who will be 4 years of age on or before
      September 1, 2011 if they meet one or more of the following criteria.
(a) The child is unable to speak and comprehend the English language.
(b)    The child is homeless, as defined by [42 USC 11302].
(c)   The child is educationally (economically) disadvantaged based on family income, SNAP/TANF case number.
(d) The child has a parent who is an active duty member of the armed forces, including the state military forces or a reserved
      component who is ordered to active duty (also includes members of the armed forces who were injured, killed, or MIA
      while serving on active duty).
(e) The child is or has ever been in the conservatorship of the Department of Family and Protective Services (foster care)
     following an adversary hearing under Section 262.201, Family Code.

      If your child speaks a language other than English, you may preregister on March 29, 2011, at
      the prekindergarten campus in your attendance zone. Parents must complete a Home Language
      Survey and your child must qualify on the Pre -IDEA Proficiency Test (Pre-IPT), which will be
      administered at preregistration. Therefore, you must bring your child with you to preregister.
      To determine at which school your child should register, call your neighborhood elementary school.

      To register, parents/guardians must furnish the school with a certified birth certificate from the
      Bureau of Vital Statistics, a current immunization record, proof of residency:
      lease agreement or current utility (water, gas, electric) bill, photo ID of parent/guardian (a
      parent/guardian must sign the application), and a Social Security card for each child, if available.

      Parents/guardians seeking additional information or clarification to determine qualifications for the
      Prekindergarten program should call their neighborhood elementary school.
      Parents who want to register their child for Prekindergarten based on income must register in
      August because family financial records must be based on income within 30 days prior to the
      beginning of school.

         For additional information call the Kindergarten/Prekindergarten Hot-Line at 281-517-2645 or visit our web site: under: Departments/Curriculum and Instruction/Prekindergarten or kindergarten/ registration
