Kindergarten and PreKindergarten Registration for 2018-2019

Preregistration for 2018-2019 kindergarten classes will be held in all elementary schools on April 18, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Visit your campus website or contact your school for further information and specific times. If you plan to register your child after April 18th, please make an appointment with the campus registrar. For the 2018 - 2019 school year, children entering kindergarten for the first time must be five years old on or before September 1, 2018. Due to Texas state law on age requirements, no exceptions will be made.


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.


Registration Requirements

The following documents are required when registering students for school in CFISD:

  • a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate from the Bureau of Vital Statistics1 (see details below).
  • a current immunization record
  • a government-issued, photo ID for the child’s parent or legal guardian.
  • proof of residency (see details below).
  • a social security card for each child, if available.


Proof of Residency: At the time of registration, parents will be asked to provide proof of residence dated within the last 30 days. Documents that are provided should reflect the parent/guardian's name and street address. If you are a homeowner, please be prepared to submit a current electric, gas, or water bill for proof of residency. If you are a lessee, please be prepared to submit your current lease agreement, along with a current light, gas, or water bill as proof of residency.


For additional information, please contact your child’s campus or check the district website https://www.cfisd.net/en/parents-students/registration/admissions-attendance-and-transfers/kindergar/
