All 14 VISD elementary schools offer pre-kindergarten for eligible four-year-olds. To be enrolled in a state-funded pre-kindergarten program, a child must provide satisfactory evidence of required immunizations AND be four years old by September 1st of the year for which he/she would be eligible to attend pre-kindergarten as well as meet one of the following five criteria:
To enroll a child in school, it is the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian to complete enrollment using the online registration system and to provide the following documents to the school:
Although enrollment shall not be denied solely on the basis of failure to provide these records, the District shall notify the appropriate law enforcement agency before the 31st day after the person fails to comply.
NOTE: Furnishing false information is a criminal offense under Penal Code 37.10.
Although there are some exceptions, a student is required to attend the school appropriate for the student's grade level and within the attendance zone in which the student's parent/guardian resides (see "Attendance Zones"). Proof of residency will be requested and reviewed to determine whether a student is eligible for admission at that school and if not, then the parent will be instructed as to which school the child must enroll at. Reference FDB-R.
The exceptions are as follows:
A student who enrolls in a school other than the one that serves the student's attendance zone without an approved transfer OR falsely as a homeless student shall be subject to immediate return to the designated neighborhood campus.
