Preregistration for 2017-2018 kindergarten classes will be held in all elementary schools beginning August 28, 2017. Visit your campus website or contact your school for further information and specific times. For the 2017 - 2018 school year, children entering kindergarten for the first time must be five years old on or before September 1, 2017. Due to Texas state law on age requirements, no exceptions will be made. The district provides full-day kindergarten.

For additional information regarding where to register kindergarten students, parents can contact their neighborhood school.

Students currently enrolled in the district’s prekindergarten program are automatically registered for kindergarten. The student’s permanent folder, which contains the student’s birth certificate and immunization records, will be sent to the student’s home school for the kindergarten year. Therefore, there is no need for parents of current prekindergartners to attend the kindergarten preregistration.

For additional information, please contact your child’s campus.
