Texas Birth Certificates

With Pre-K and Kindergarten Roundup approaching, Texas.gov is reminding parents that they can go               directly to Texas.gov and order a certified birth certificate for $22, the same price as a walk-in or mail           order. This online service, offered in English and Spanish, provides parents with a straightforward, secure       option for ordering their child’s birth certificate. The orders are fulfilled by the Texas Department of State    Health Services.

Texas Education Code §29.153

 Texas Education Code §29.153 states “a district shall offer pr ekindergarten classes if the district identifies          15 or more children who are eligible under Subsection (b) and are at least four years of age. A school      district may offer prekindergarten classes if the district identifies 15 or more eligible children who are at      least three years of age. A district may not charge tuition for a prekindergarten class offered under this               section."

In 2007, the Texas Legislature amended Section §29.153 of the Texas Education Code to include among         those who are eligible for free prekindergarten, children who are in or who have ever been in the conservatorship of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) following an adversary hearing. This includes not only children who are in or who have been in DFPS conservatorship, but also           children who have been adopted or returned to their parents after being in DFPS conservatorship.
