Have a child who will be 4 years old by Sept. 1, 2018? Make plans to enroll him or her in pre-kindergarten to get a head start on being in a school environment and learning.

Two forms of pre-K are available at Northwest ISD, a state-assisted program and a tuition-based program. Families must meet specific requirements for enrollment in the free, state-funded program (such as economic or military requirements), while the district will use a lottery system to select children for inclusion in the tuition-based program. Both are half-day programs (sessions are available in either the morning or afternoon).

The tuition-based program is paid in 10 monthly installments of $377.80 from August 2018 to May 2019.  Parents and guardians can now register their children for the lottery of the tuition-based pre-K program by clicking here. Registration for the lottery closes March 9.
