General Education Students
General education students who are eligible for the free Pre-Kindergarten program must be 4 years of age by September 1 and must meet one of the Pre-K qualifiers (see list below).
Tuition-Based Pre-Kindergarten Students
The Texas Education Agency outlines criteria for students to qualify for Pre-K services at no cost to the family. In the past, Keller ISD has been able to offer limited tuition-based Pre-K for students who do not meet state criteria. Due to KISD's increase in qualifying Pre-K enrollment, the District is no longer anticipating the ability to offer tuition-based Pre-K.
Students who qualify for Pre-K based on state criteria will be placed in Pre-K first. Any family wanting tuition-based Pre-K services through Keller ISD will be placed on a waiting list. If space is available for tuition-based Pre-K enrollment, Keller ISD will notify those families on the tuition-based waiting list by June 15.
Special Education Students
Special education students who qualify to attend our ECSE, TALK and Itinerant Speech programs will complete online enrollment upon completion of the initial ARD meeting.
