Summary:

Starting the 2019-20 school year, Lumberton ISD will be offering full-day Pre-Kindergarten classes for all eligible students located within our school district boundary.  The school district will transition from two half-day class offerings to a full-day offering in response to new legislation offering high quality foundation and academic skills needed to support the child throughout their education.

To be eligible for pre-kindergarten, students must meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • The child qualifies for free or reduced lunch
  • The child qualifies as homeless as defined by federal law
  • The child is currently in or has been in foster care
  • The child is unable to speak or comprehend the English language and needs English as a Second Language or bilingual opportunities
  • The child qualifies as a child of an active duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces or the child of a member of the U.S. Armed Forces who was injured or killed while serving on active duty
  • The child of a person eligible for the Star of Texas Award

The district will provide transportation for all eligible Pre-Kindergarten students to and from school.
