Thanks to the AGISD Board of Trustees for ensuring we have a quality instructional program for Pre-Kindergarten. They have approved adding a third section of PK in order to keep class sizes small, comply with state guidelines, and better serve educational needs. All PK classes will be full-day for 2020-2021 and future years.
To be eligible for the free Pre-Kindergarten program, your child must be 4 years of age by Sept. 1 and meet an eligibility requirement as required by Texas law:
