PreKindergarten & Kindergarten 2021-22 Registration

Registration for new PreKindergarten and Kindergarten students for the 2021-22 school year will be done online beginning Monday, April 5 through TISD's Ascender parent portal. Parents should use their existing Ascender account to enroll their new PreK or Kindergarten student for next year. If parents do not have an existing Ascender account, they will create their Ascender account to complete their student's PreK or Kindergarten registration. Instructions for creating and using Ascender accounts for online registration will be posted soon. 
 
Students currently enrolled this school year in PreKindergarten do NOT need to register for Kindergarten for the 2021-22 school year. These students will automatically be enrolled for next school year. 
 
***Our apologies for the "Last Year's Grade" issue in the Ascender online registration process. We are currently unable to remove this question in the registration process. Please select any grade level for this question and finish the registration process. We will correct these last year's grade selections to None as we finalize your student's registration.
 
All parents will come to school on Tuesday, April 13 to turn in required paperwork for registration. Any parent without Internet access or a device to complete online registration can do this at school on Tuesday, April 13.
