KISD: Tuition-based pre-K application process for 2019-20 now open
Northwest ISD will continue offering its tuition-based pre-kindergarten during the 2018-19 school year, and the application process for the program is now open.
Tuition-based pre-K is available for children who live within Northwest ISD boundaries and will be 4 years old by Sept. 1 but do not meet the eligibility requirements to enroll in state-funded pre-K. Those who are accepted into the tuition-based program will have the opportunity to attend half-day pre-K. Tuition for the program is $377.80 per month over 10 months, or a one-time payment of $3,778.
Because class space is limited, tuition-based pre-K will select students through a lottery system. Lottery registration for the program will be available until 6 p.m. Friday, March 8, when the application process will close. Students will be selected for the program based on available classroom space at Curtis, Haslet, Hughes, Justin, Lakeview, Love, Nance, Peterson, Prairie View, Roanoke, Seven Hills and Thompson elementary schools. It has not yet been determined if pre-K will be available at the currently under-construction Lance Thompson Elementary School.
A non-refundable payment of $125 is due at document review during a child’s campus to hold his or her spot. This payment, which only applies to those chosen from the lottery, will be credited toward the first tuition payment.
