The Socorro Independent School District will have a pre-kindergarten and new kindergarten student registration day for the 2019-2020 school year from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 6 at elementary schools across the district.
SISD offers free half-day Pre-K to all students who live in the district, even if they don’t meet the state requirements; the district also offers free full-day Pre-K based on a first-come, first-served basis.
The full-day program is free for those who qualify based on economic, language, homeless or military (active) requirements as established by the state.
Families who do not qualify for free Pre-K but would like to enroll in full-day are entitled to a free half-day and tuition-based for the other half. The tuition is $181.68 per month for a 10-month school year.
New kindergarten students (not currently enrolled in SISD Pre-K) will have the opportunity to apply for SISD’s new Dual Language Academy. The academy will be available for students in kindergarten and first grade for the 2019-2020 school year at Dr. Sue Shook and Myrtle Cooper elementary schools.
The following documents will be required during the Pre-K and new kindergarten registration:
- student birth certificate
- immunization record
- social security card
- a current utility bill
- an identification for the parent or legal guardian registering the child
Registration will take place April 6 at the elementary home schools as indicated below. Cactus Trails Elementary School students will register at Pebble Hills High School.
Registration for Pre-K students will continue April 8 at designated Pre-K hubs and elementary campuses that serve Pre-K. New kindergarten registration also will continue April 8 at the designated home campuses.
Parents of children who turn four years old by Sept. 1, 2019 and live within the district boundaries can register them for free Pre-K.
Parents of children who turn five years old by Sept. 1, 2019 and live within the district boundaries can register them for kindergarten in SISD schools.
