Registration opens for Lubbock ISD’s prekindergarten program this Thursday, April 6 from 8 – 9 a.m. and 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at neighborhood campuses.

Parents and guardians may attend either session at their closest home campus; attendance at both is not required.

Lubbock ISD provides prekindergarten for eligible children who are four years old on or before September 1 of the current school year. Students may qualify for prekindergarten in three different ways: state-funded, Head Start or tuition-based. Head Start provides prekindergarten for low-income families as well as health, dental, mental health and family support services for school readiness.

Online registration information can be found on the Lubbock ISD website.

In addition to the online registration, documentation including the student’s original birth certificate, immunization records and proof of address will be needed, with additional documentation requirements for military dependents and families with children in foster care. Tuition waivers are available for eligible students.

Lubbock ISD’s prekindergarten instructional foundation is comprised of the Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines and the Early Learning Framework of Head Start and aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) K-12. The curriculum focuses on oral language development, early literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, fine arts, health and safety, social skills, technology and physical development.
