El Paso ISD opens pre-k slots to non-qualifying families

Parents of 4-year-old children in El Paso County now have another option for their little scholars: El Paso ISD has spaces available for its dual-language, full-day pre-k programs.

Normally reserved for students who meet federal qualifications for service, EPISD’s innovative pre-kindergarten program has slots available throughout the city for families who otherwise wouldn’t meet the federal guidelines.

“Any 4-year-old student whose family lives in the county can enroll to receive dual-language instruction and get a head start on their education under the guidance of certified teachers, nationally recognized STEAM curricula and 21st century technology,” El Paso ISD officials shared.
