SISD registration opens April 12 for free, full-day Pre-K for all 4y/o, half-day for qualifying 3y/o students

Tuesday afternoon, officials with the Socorro Independent School District announced the date that parents can begin to register their children for their free full-day Pre-Kindergarten program for all 4-year-olds, as well as a half-day program for qualifying 3-year-old students that live within school district boundaries.

“We have incredible academic programs for our youngest students in the community and we welcome them to our outstanding school district,” said SISD Superintendent José Espinoza, Ed.D. “Team SISD ensures all students succeed, especially our 3- and 4-year-olds who will start a solid foundation for their future success in and out of the classroom. Our highly qualified, effective educators in the early childhood program provide engaging and fun instruction that inspires our young students to soar to success.”

Online registration will be from April 12-23, 2021 on

SISD officials share that their early childhood programs provide engaging, hands-on learning to build a solid foundation for students to succeed in their academic journey.

The curriculum includes social and emotional development, language development, technology, social studies, math, science, and physical development. In addition, new Pre-K students may apply for the Dual Language Academy.

SISD will open Pre-Kindergarten and 3-year-old student online registration for the 2021-2022 school year on April 12, via the district website.
