Austin ISD’s Pre-K Enrollment Fair scheduled for July 20

Austin ISD is holding a Pre-K Enrollment Fair from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 at Crockett Early College High School, 5601 Manchaca Road.

Studies show enrolling early in school helps children get a head start and improves their chances for a successful future.

The district offers free Pre-K for eligible 3-and 4-year-olds at campuses throughout the district. Additionally, at more than a dozen schools, AISD offers a dual language Pre-K curriculum.

The fair is a chance to meet staff, learn about programs at campuses across the district and register eligible students for free Pre-K.

Pre-K is available to families tuition-free if the child meets one of the following criteria:

  • Qualifies for free or reduced cost lunch;
  • speaks a language other than English as their main language;
  • has an active military parent;
  • has a military parent who has been injured or killed in active duty;
  • is the child of a person eligible for the Star of Texas Award;
  • is homeless; or
  • has been served by Child Protective Services.

The Pre-K Enrollment Fair is for all the Pre-K programs at schools throughout AISD.  Refreshments and child-friendly activities will be provided.

To register families will need to bring:

  • Current paycheck stub or SNAP eligibility documentation;
  • proof of residence, gas or electric bill, or lease agreement;
  • child’s official birth certificate or equivalent;
  • up-to-date immunization record;
  • parent/guardian photo ID; and
  • child’s social security card, if the child has one.
