The Pre-K and Head Start programs at both Malakoff Elementary and Tool Elementary schools were recently awarded the “Center of Excellence” designation, part of the new Texas Kindergarten Readiness System. The KRS “evaluates the effectiveness of prekindergarten, Head Start, and community-based licensed child care programs in preparing children for kindergarten.” Both Malakoff ISD elementary campuses received the highest rating for “excellence in Texas early childhood education.” Pictured above are teachers and administrators from the two campuses receiving banners to be displayed at their schools.
