GCISD is in the planning stages for the 2021-2022 school year. Please note that at this time during registration, families will not be committing to any form of instructional model (in-person, virtual, etc.). Those decisions will be made by families at a later date when more information is available.

Kindergarten Registration

Children must be 5 years old by September 1 of a school year to qualify for kindergarten that year. If children are 4 years old by September 1 of a school year, they are eligible for Pre-Kindergarten.

Required Documents

Students entering GCISD need to complete the enrollment forms in Skyward and must be done prior to a student starting the school year. Families may upload the residency information directly into Skyward. The campus may require an in-person visit to address any possible questions. Each school schedules a time before school begins for enrollment completion of new students and, if needed, returning students. Dates and times for enrollment completion can be found by contacting your school.

Families will need to upload the following documentation items to Skyward:

  • Parent/Guardian’s Government issued identification - i.e. Texas drivers license
  • Proof of Residency
    • Current utility bill with physical address – post office boxes not accepted
    • A property tax statement, executed lease or deed of sale
  • Child’s Birth Certificate
    • Pre-K: Children must be 4 years old by September 1 and meet qualifications
    • Kindergarten: Children must be 5 years old by September 1
    • First Grade: Children must be 6 years old by September 1
  • Vaccination Records – will be reviewed by the school nurse
  • Your child’s Social Security card, if one has been obtained
  • Your child's last report card or transcript

For students living with other families, the student's parent and the person with whom the student is living must come to the campus during the time for enrollment completion in order to complete either an Affidavit of Residency and/or a Special Power of Attorney. The person with whom they live must show proof of residency.
