INFORMATION FOR NEW STUDENTS

Click here if you would like to print a copy of this page.

A new student is defined as a student that was not enrolled at EISD at the end of the 2019-2020 school year.  This will include all Pre-K and Kindergarten students that did NOT attend Pre-K at EISD last year.  You are considered a new student even if you filled out paperwork during the Pre-K and Kindergarten round-up.

If you are a returning student and you have reached this page by accident, please click here to be redirected.

FILL OUT OUR NEW STUDENT PACKET

 

Each new student will be required to fill out a paper packet of information.  If you have the ability to print your paper packet from home, please click here, print the packet and complete each form entirely.

If you do not have the ability to print your paper packet, there are boxes at the entrance of each campus with paper packets inside of them.  Please pick up the packet at your convenience. Due to safety restraints, we ask that at this time, you do not plan to enter the buildings when picking up the packets.  We are allowing parents on campus by appointments only.

Each form is explained below:

Registration: basic student information
Contacts: information for parents/guardians.  This information is imperative.  If not complete, you will be contacted to add more contacts to your child's record.  There must be adults listed that can pick up your child in the event of an illness or a release.

Ethnicity and Race Data Questionnaire:  The United States Department of Education (USDE) requires all state and local education institutions to collect data on ethnicity and race for students and staff. This information is used for state and federal accountability reporting as well as for reporting to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
