• Prekindergarten

    The Texas Legislature determines eligibility requirements for free, public prekindergarten in Texas. The Legislature established the prekindergarten program with the intent of providing early learning experiences to students who are most in need.  The Legi​slature believed that a high-quality prekindergarten program could mitigate the impact of the at-risk characteristics, thereby assisting students to become school-ready when they enter kindergarten.  Katy ISD offers a prekindergarten program for eligible students who turn 4 years of age on or before September 1st of the school year in which they intend to enroll.  The District uses PowerSchool, an online registration process, for new student registration.
