MISD Tuition-Based Pre-K Starts August 2019
Posted 01/09/2019 03:39PM

Parents of 4-year-olds within Mansfield ISD will soon have more opportunities for their child’s education. A tuition-based pre-kindergarten (pre-K) program is coming to Mansfield ISD in the 2019-20 school year.

By creating the program, MISD is staying aligned with its guiding statements of creating more educational opportunities for MISD families and having students reading on level or higher by the beginning of third grade and remaining on level or higher as an MISD student.

“We believe in our curriculum, and we believe that what we are doing for these ages is working,” said Kristi Cobb, director of early literacy. “We’re starting fee-based pre-kindergarten classes to expose even more children to our educational programs and fill a need for those who may not qualify for our free pre-kindergarten program.”

MISD’s tuition-based pre-kindergarten program will be for children who are 4 years of age on or before Sept. 1 of the current school year and who are not eligible for the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) or the free federally-funded pre-kindergarten program.

Cobb said the half-day classes will follow the district’s experience-based curriculum and will offer the same high-caliber staff members. Each class will have a capacity of approximately 18 students, equipped with a certified teacher and a teacher’s aide.

The fee-based pre-K classes will be housed at:

  • J.L. Boren Elementary School
    1401 Country Club Drive
    Mansfield, TX 76063
  • Annette Perry Elementary School
    1261 S. Main Street
    Mansfield, TX 76063
  • Roberta Tipps Elementary School
    3001 N. Walnut Creek Drive
    Mansfield, TX 76063

  • Dr. Sarah K. Jandrucko Academy for Early Learners
    7811 S Collins Street
    Arlington, TX 76002 

The morning session is from 8 a.m. to 11:10 a.m. Afternoon sessions are 12:20 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Meals will be provided for each session.

During the application process, parents and guardians can choose the location and session of their choice. No MISD bus transportation will be provided.

The tuition-based pre-K application window for the 2019-20 school year is Jan. 9 through Feb. 8. To apply or receive more information about the new program, visit www.mansfieldisd.org/prek.
