Dallas ISD pre-K enrollment for the 2018–2019 school year kicked off on Monday, April 2. The district offers both free and tuition-based Pre-K programs throughout the district.
Pre-K classes offer a safe environment that includes daily, structured academic lessons. Studies have shown that children who attend prekindergarten are more likely to succeed in school, more likely to graduate and more likely to go to college.
Dallas ISD offers free Pre-K programs for children who are three- or four-years-old on or before September 1, 2018 and meet at least ONE of these requirements:
- The child is eligible to take part in the national free or reduced-price school lunch program. To find out if your child is eligible, click here.
- The child is unable to speak and comprehend the English language.
- The child is homeless.
- The child is a dependent of an active duty member of the U.S. armed forces.
- The child is or has been in foster care.
For children who do not meet one of the five eligibility requirements, a limited number of spots for tuition-paid Pre-K are available at several schools around the district. Tuition is $525 per month per child.
Parents interested in a Dallas ISD Pre-K program for the 2018-2019 school year, can apply beginning on April 2. More information on the application process and requirements can be found at prekdallas.org/.
