• 2020-2021 Pre-K & Kinder Pre-Registration

     

    Calallen ISD is utilizing a pre-registration form to collect information needed to begin the enrollment process for your Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students for the 2020-2021 school year.  Completion of this form does not guarantee enrollment in Pre-K or Kinder for next year.   

    We ask that you complete one form for each student using only accurate information.  Once the district re-opens, you will be required to provide formal documentation to verify what is entered is accurate and true.  All information required to be enrolled, including proof of identity (birth certificate, social security card, passport, etc.), proof of residency (utility bills or lease agreements, etc.), immunization records, and qualifying documentation for Pre-K eligibility will be verified.  Failure to provide these documents when requested will prevent the student from being enrolled in Calallen ISD.
