Katy ISD will start the 2019-2020 school year by moving from a half-day preschool to a full-day preschool program as the result of House Bill (HB) 3 that was passed by the 86th Texas Legislature and signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott.
Pre-K Will Be Full Day
Full-day classes for pre-k students in KISD will begin on August 14, 2019. Parents of preregistered pre-k students will receive a notification letter mailed on today, Tuesday, July 30, notifying them that their child is eligible to begin full day pre-k on the first day of school.
"We are excited to have the opportunity to serve our youngest learners in a full-day setting,” said Chief Academic Officer Dr. Christine Caskey. “As a result of this change, it is important that parents confirm their assigned pre-k campus along with their bell schedule,” added Caskey.
KISD Expands Preschool Campus'
To accommodate a full day of instruction, the District has expanded the number of campuses offering pre-k. See the list below.
