    As you know, our district has the responsibility of serving eligible children based on the prekindergarten guidelines established by the Texas Education Agency. In order to be eligible for enrollment in a prekindergarten class, a child must be 4 years of age on September 1 of the current school year and:

    1. unable to speak and comprehend the English language; or
    2. educationally disadvantaged; or
    3. homeless; or
    4. a dependent of:
      • an active duty uniformed member of the military
      • a military parent who is missing in action or deceased; or
      • a foster child.

    We must make every effort to serve eligible prekindergarten children in a fair and equitable manner. If you need more information, please contact the Early Childhood Education Department at (972) 925-6770.

    School Messenger

    The Dallas ISD and all schools use an automated phone message system to communicate with parents and staff about important news. Schools use the system to alert parents to school events, student absences, and other important information. To ensure that they do not miss any announcements from the schools or the district, parents should make sure that their children’s records include current contact information like phone number and address.
