Austin ISD is excited to welcome students to Pre-K for the 2020-21 school year.

In this unprecedented time, we recognize that our families have many questions about how to begin school this year. The first day of school is Sept. 8. Remote instruction will continue.

We will offer remote learning for our Pre-K students in both our state-funded program and our tuition program. Our rigorous program:

  • Is taught by a certified Pre-K teacher
  • Delivers high-quality, play-based early childhood curriculum aligned to Texas Pre-K
  • guidelines and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)
  • Provides connections with campus community and culture
  • Fosters interaction with peers and families on your campus
  • Includes access to the following remote learning tools:
    • District-issued iPads to support digital learning
    • Seesaw for schools
    • IXL for Pre-K
    • Imagine Learning and Imagine Español (dual-language learning)
    • Dreambox Learning- Math

Austin ISD remains committed to providing the best quality experience for our students. Our tuition rates will remain $4,950 for the year and $550 per month for Pre-K4 and $2,475 for the year and $275 per month for Pre-K3 half-day program.

We understand that the tuition program may not work for your family at this singular time due to the effects of COVID-19. Families who have students enrolled in Pre-K are asked to complete an intention survey to let the district know if the student will continue in the remote learning program. The district will not be able to hold tuition seats at this time. Families who chose to forgo the tuition program at this time will have the opportunity to add the student to a waiting list for seats available when school returns to face-to-face learning.

El Austin ISD está emocionado de recibir estudiantes de prekínder para el ciclo escolar 2020-21.

Durante estos tiempos sin precedentes, reconocemos que nuestras familias tienen muchas preguntas acerca de cómo empezar las clases este año.

Ofreceremos el aprendizaje a distancia para nuestros estudiantes de prekínder en nuestros dos programas, el de financiamiento estatal y el de paga. Nuestro riguroso programa:

  • Lo enseña un maestro certificado en prekínder
  • Ofrece un plan de estudios de alta calidad y centrado en el juego de la primera infancia de acuerdo con los lineamientos de prekínder de Texas y los Conocimientos y Destrezas Esenciales de Texas (TEKS, por sus siglas en inglés)
  • Proporciona las conexiones con la comunidad y la cultura escolar
  • Fomenta la interacción con los compañeros y las familias de su plantel
  • Incluye acceso a las siguientes herramientas de aprendizaje a distancia:
    • iPad que proporciona el distrito para apoyar al aprendizaje digital
    • Seesaw para las escuelas
    • IXL para prekínder
    • Imagine Learning e Imagine Español (aprendizaje de lenguaje dual)
    • Dreambox Learning- Matemáticas

El Austin ISD continúa con el compromiso de brindar la experiencia de mejor calidad para nuestros estudiantes. El precio de nuestra matrícula seguirá siendo de $4,950 por año y de $550 por mes para el prekínder 4 y $2,475 por año y $275 por mes para el programa de prekínder 3 de medio día.

Entendemos que el programa con pago de matrícula podría no funcionar para su familia en estos tiempos sin igual debido a los efectos de la COVID-19. Se les pide a las familias que tienen estudiantes matriculados en el prekínder que llenen una encuesta de intención para hacerle saber al distrito si el estudiante continuará en el programa de aprendizaje a distancia. En esta ocasión el distrito no podrá reservar cupo en la matrícula. Las familias que escojan renunciar al programa con pago de matrícula en esta ocasión, tendrán la oportunidad de agregar al estudiante a una lista de espera para cupo disponible cuando la escuela regrese al aprendizaje presencial.
