Registration - General Requirements
Attendance zone information for all Katy ISD schools can be found by using the Student Assignment by Residential Address (SARA) application or mobile app. This app provides the ability to search by a specific address or you can select any campus to see what subdivisions and apartment complexes it serves.
Katy ISD will be using PowerSchool Registration, an easy to use, online registration system for new student registration. A new student is defined as new to Katy ISD and having never attended a school in Katy ISD, or a previous Katy ISD student who is re-enrolling. You still must go to your child's campus to complete the registration process:
PreK, KG, New 1st Grade Pre-Registration
Online registration for PreK, Kindergarten, and New 1st grade will open for the 2020-2021 school year on April 1, 2020, at Online registration (PowerSchool).
Parents/authorized adults must first electronically register their child by going to Katy ISD Online Registration and selecting New Student Registration. This process may be done from any computer or hand-held device beginning April 1, 2020.

Proof of immunization must also be provided during registration. Student immunizations must be as up-to-date as medically feasible and must be certified by a doctor or public health official. A student will not be allowed to attend class if immunization records are not presented at enrollment. A full list of required immunizations, including information about provisional enrollment, can be downloaded from the
Health Services Department. For more information, contact the Katy ISD Health Services department at (281) 396-2629.
Katy ISD follows the Texas Department of State Health Services recommendation for immunization compliance in order for a student to attend school. The law requires that all students be up-to-date as medically feasible in order to attend classes. The immunization vaccine requirements for each grade level are listed on the Katy ISD website. Exemptions to the immunization requirements are allowable on an individual basis for medical contraindications, reasons of conscience-including religious belief, and active duty with the armed forces of the United States. For further information visit the
Texas Department of State Health Services website.
