Mansfield ISD wants to ensure that its youngest learners are ready for academic and social-emotional success, so the district has expanded the opportunities available to parents of prekindergarten (pre-K) students.

MISD will begin offering full-day pre-K classes next year. The implementation will occur in stages over the next three years.
Beginning in the 2020-21 school year, full-day pre-K will be offered at the following campuses:
- J.L. Boren Elementary School (tuition-based)
- Erma Nash Elementary School
- Nancy Neal Elementary School
- Annette Perry Elementary School
- Tarver-Rendon School of Agricultural Leadership
More campuses will be added in the 2021-22 school year, and all MISD elementary schools will have full-day pre-K programs by the 2022-23 school year.
Under House Bill 3 (HB3), which passed in the Texas Legislature in 2019, all Texas school districts are required to offer eligible 4-year-old students full-day prekindergarten classes.
Students enrolled in full-day pre-K will still need to meet the state requirements for prekindergarten.
For children who are not eligible for the free federally-funded prekindergarten program, MISD’s tuition-based pre-K program is available to them.
MISD will offer tuition-based pre-K at J.L. Boren Elementary School (full day) and The Sarah K. Jandrucko Academy for Early Learners (half day). There are limited seats for this program, and an application is required to attend.
The application window for the 2020-21 school year will be March 16 through April 2. Acceptance at a location is determined using a lottery system. Parents will be notified about results on April 6.
