Pre-K Registration is a TWO-STEP process that begins after April 1, 2023. Most of the Pre-K registration process can be completed electronically. Students who may qualify due to a limited ability to speak or comprehend English will be administered a language assessment. This assessment must be done in-person.
The first step in our registration process is completing the Parent Questionnaire Form.
The information submitted will help us determine if your child meets the requirements to participate in the Pre-K Program. Only children who qualify are able to attend. Your child must meet one of these requirements:
Proficiency in English is limited due to another language being spoken in the home. (The state of Texas requires that all students who have a language other than English on the Home Language Survey complete language testing to determine English proficiency.)
Low family income qualifies the student for the free/reduced lunch program. (Parent must submit one of the following: last three current pay stubs, most recent tax return IF self-employed, IRS form 1099, an official signed letter from employer on company letterhead listing income, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligibility letter with EDG (Eligibility Determination Group) number listed.
