Katy Independent School District



The Texas Legislature determines eligibility requirements for free, public prekindergarten in Texas. When the Texas Legislature established the prekindergarten program the intent was, and still is, to provide early learning experiences to students who are most at risk for school failure. Therefore the eligibility is limited. The Legislature believed that a high quality prekindergarten program could mitigate the impact of the at-risk characteristics, thereby assisting these students to become school ready when they enter kindergarten.  Katy ISD will be using InfoSnap, an online registration process for new student registration. Parents of those students who may be eligible for Pre-Kindergarten are encouraged to begin the online registration process.


​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Prekindergarten Family Engagement

Katy ISD has developed and implemented a prekindergarten family engagement plan to assist the district in achieving and maintaining high levels of family engagement in prekindergarten and positive family attitudes toward education at the prekindergarten level.  This family engagement plan is designed to support six components of family engagement critical to the development of a high quality prekindergarten program.
