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 uses PowerSchool, an online registration process for new student registration. Parents of those students who may be eligible for prekindergarten are encouraged to utilize the online registration process in addition to attending pre-k registration. Information will be posted on this webpage when online registration is available.
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.
