Linden-Kildare Consolidated Independent School District
"A Great Place for Kids!"
We believe school board members shall make students the priority, have no
personal agendas, and be actively involved as community builders.
We believe central administration sets the tone for the district through leadership
We believe the principal, through consistent leadership, sets the tone, climate, and
culture of the campus to ensure what’s best for each student.
We believe teachers shall challenge, inspire, and influence each student to grow in
order to become a productive citizen.
We believe that parents/guardians are our partners and their involvement is vital to
our students’ success.
We believe students shall be valued as the focus of the district by being challenged
in a safe environment so they are eager to explore ways to reach their potential.
”Child Find” Program Efforts Underway
Linden-Kildare C.I.S.D. offers a free, appropriate, public education with a full continuum of services for children and young adults identified with disabilities from age 36 months through 21 years of age and from birth through 21 years of age for children and young adults with hearing or vision impairments. Children from birth to age 3 with other disabilities will be referred to appropriate agencies for services or parents may contact Opportunities, Inc., 6101 N. State Line, Texarkana, TX 75503, or call 903.791.2288. Evaluations in the schools are provided for suspected disabilities including learning disabilities, speech and language development, physical impairments, vision or hearing impairments, intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, autism, health impairments, or traumatic brain injuries. Services are determined based on each child’s individual needs. Once a referral is made the campus will follow its Student Support Team (SST) process. The Student Support Team may refer the student on for a special education evaluation if needed. A Full and Individual Evaluation (FIE) is conducted to determine the child’s disability and an educational need for services. Referrals are confidential and services provided at no cost. For more information regarding the referral process and special education eligibility criteria contact the principal or counselor at each campus:
