The Kerrville Independent School District has released the instructions for registering students for the upcoming 2020-21 school year.

The school calendar was revised as adopted in May last spring and has the opening day of classes for students on Aug. 17.

The week before that is scheduled for teacher training, meetings and preparation of their classrooms.

Below is all the registration information that KISD administration has as of early July.

Some dates have not been finalized yet, such as “Meet the Teacher Nights,” because they aren’t sure if those will be in-person events.

All of this information can be found on the KISD District website at:

If parents have any more questions about registration, call the KISD Administration offices at 257-2200, and connect with the assistant superintendent of curriculum or the superintendent’s office.

Early Childhood Center

Call the Early Childhood Center office at 257-1335 to make an appointment to register.

There are applications available for Head Start and Pre-K programs.

Those are open to age- and income-eligible students, who must be 3 or 4 years old on or before Sept. 1, 2020 and at least one of the following:

• Qualify for the school lunch program;

• Non-English speaking;

• McKinney-Vento Act;

• Active duty military; MIA/Injured or killed while on active duty;

• Foster care;

• In/was in conservatorship of TxDFPS;

• Qualified through the Special Education Department; or

• Receive SSI or TANF.

This year, KISD is offering Full-Day Pre-K to any student, not just those in KISD attendance zones.

So parents of pre-kindergarten-age students who live outside KISD border lines can consider this option for their qualified children.
