Interested families can learn more about EPISD universal pre-kinder

Parents interested in participating in the free universal pre-kindergarten
program at specific campuses in the El Paso Independent School District are invited to attend any the five open houses happening this month.

The open houses are designed to showcase the pre-k program offerings like dual-language and STEAM instruction, and answer questions about enrolling students in pre-k even if they don’t otherwise qualify for the program.

All open houses will start at 9 a.m. at the following dates and locations:
• Saturday, Feb. 6
o Barron Elementary, 11155 Whitey Ford St.
o Bond Elementary, 250 Lindbergh Ave.
o Kohlberg Elementary, 1445 Nardo Goodman Dr.
o Schuster Elementary, 5515 Will Ruth Ave.
• Saturday, Feb. 13, at MacArthur Intermediate, 8101 Whitus Dr.

The EPISD Board of Trustees last month approved the expansion of the pre-k programs to
eight campuses for students from families who do not meet income and socio-economic prerequisites.
The other three campuses hosting universal pre-k units are Cielo Vista, Crockett
and Fannin elementary schools.
EPISD currently offers free pre-k to students who are English language learners or come
from low-income, military or homeless families. Starting next year, 16 half-day pre-k classes
at the eight expansion offers will open pre-k slots to any family living in El Paso County.
The District will continue to offer the dual-language program in all pre-k classrooms, and
starting next year the curriculum will have an additional STEAM (science, technology,
engineering, arts and math) focus.
