What is PPCD?

The Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) provides special education and related services for eligible children with disabilities ages three to five. PPCD refers to the services provided by the school district, not to the place where they are provided. Eligible children may receive PPCD services in a variety of settings such as pre-kindergarten, resource, and self-contained classrooms.
PPCD serves children age three to five with varying degrees of disability. Services, which begin on the child’s third birthday, are provided in the least restrictive environment.
The primary goal of PPCD is to provide a quality preschool experience that prepares students for success in general education or in the least restrictive environment by age six. The instructional focus is to provide opportunities for learning that are appropriate for each child’s developmental level.t.

 

What is Tuition-Based Preschool?
The Tuition-Based Preschool Program complements the Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD). The tuition-based program is blended with identified PPCD students and creates an inclusive learning experience for all students. Each classroom is rostered in accordance with state recommended ratios and the instruction follows the State of Texas pre-K guidelines. The program is staffed by a dually-certified general and special education teacher along with instructional assistants. Families may apply for a spot in the tuition-based preschool at any time by contacting the Instructional Team Leader for the tuition-based preschool. A birth certificate is required for the application.
 
Ms. Landwehr's PPCD/Pre-K classroom is located in room 126.  The classroom phone number is 214-780-3293.
