Moody ISD Pre-Kindergarten plan and process:

  1. Add PK-3 as ½ day program and keep our PK-4 as full day. We will use local funds to offset the loss of PK-4 funding because the state currently only funds ½ day for the full time PK-4 students.

  2. Open up our PK program to all District residents because we have over 75% qualifiers. We feel giving every family (the other 25%)  the chance to benefit would be better for our community.

  3. Charge a Board approved tuition for the non-qualifiers: PK-3 half day is approved at $750.00 for all year.    PK-4 is $1500.00 dollars for the whole year.

  4. Recommend a  district ratio at 12/1 in PK3 and 15/1 in PK4, showing the commitment to offer the best opportunity to present quality instruction .

  5. Use an approved assessment program for the reading assessment component and some math. Our focus is reading at this age.

  6. Our district uses the pre LAS2000 for 4year olds and the pre LAS2000 Observational Assessment or district approved program is administered at BOY and EOY to LEP students.

  7. Frog Street press curriculum is used.

  8. We utilize balanced literacy in reading readiness.

  9. Hands on learning provided routinely as well as campus math/science/ELA projects

  10. Social skills lessons are built into curriculum and supplemented by professional staff

  11. Our Teachers will desegregate skills assessment data, and data team meetings are held every 5 weeks and BOY, MOY, EOY data is discussed.

  12. RTI and acceleration is provided for individual students as needed,  as determined at data team meetings.

  13. We will develop our own PK-3 & PK-4 local assessment that is reviewed, developed and approved by our Kindergarten Teachers.

  14. We have developed and follow up each 9 weeks with a DISTRICT developed document to show: Student growth, student participation, community/ business and parent opportunities for involvement, student attendance, number and type of campus safety drills, teacher professional development opportunities and Teacher attendance.

  15. Technology is utilized in PK3 and PK4 classrooms to enhance student learning.  Teachers intentional instructional planning drives the use of technology in the classroom.  The utilization of technology is included in lesson plans and Campus Scope & Sequence.  Enrichment and integration extend outside the classroom to include parent communication through our websites, weekly newsletters, twitter, Remind 101, pictures and/or videos placed on class websites.   Technology devices are also available in each classroom and are utilized as enrichment, intervention and/or guided practice tools.  Classrooms will provide students with a variety of learning modalities to enhance/enrich the presentation of lessons/activities.
