A smooth transition makes a difference

The transition to kindergarten is a major step for your child and your family. Like any transition, planning and preparation will help your child adjust to her next environment, and set the stage for success throughout her educational journey. 

The Texas kindergarten curricula is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Kindergarten. If your child is placed in a kindergarten program, your ARD Committee will develop IEP goals that are aligned with the TEKS, after taking your child’s abilities and needs into account.
