CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Flour Bluff ISD Early Childhood Center will offer full-day Pre-K for children who meet prekindergarten eligibility requirements.

The service will begin with the 2021-22 school year.

Flour Bluff ISD currently is accepting Pre-K qualifying applications for students who may qualify under the state's requirements.

“Pre-K is a wonderful first step for children to become accustomed to an education environment,” said Amy Seeds, Flour Bluff's ECC principal. “We know that students who experience the Pre-K jump-start have the opportunity to learn and grow and become life-long learners.”

To qualify for Pre-K under the eligibility requirements set by the state of Texas for the 2021-2022 school year, a child must be 4 years of age by September 1, 2021, and also meet at least one of the following criteria:

  • Unable to speak and comprehend the English language
  • Educationally disadvantaged, which means a student eligible to participate in the national free or reduced-price lunch program
  • Homeless
  • Child of an active-duty member of the armed forces of the United States, including the state military forces or a reserve component of the armed forces, who was injured or killed while serving on active duty
  • Child of a member of the armed forces of the United States, including the state military forces or a reserve component of the armed forces, who was injured or killed while serving on active duty
  • Have been in the conservatorship of the Department of Family and Protective Services
  • Child of a person eligible for the Star of Texas Award
