The District hosts two Pre-K Rodeo events for parents and guardians to enroll their child in Round Rock ISD early learning programs.
HOW TO REGISTER YOUR CHILD FOR PRE-K:
To finalize registration and qualifications for the Round Rock ISD early learning Pre-K program, parents or guardians can attend one of the scheduled Pre-K Rodeo events with the required documentation, listed below, and complete the registration process.
July 17, 2018, attend Pre-K Rodeo at Elsa England Elementary, 8801 Pearson Ranch Rd, Austin, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. or July 18, 2018 attend Pre-K Rodeo at Teravista Elementary, 4419 Teravista Club Dr. Round Rock, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Bring your child’s official birth certificate, immunization records (see roundrockisd.org/health for a list of required vaccines), two proofs of residency in the Round Rock ISD school district (contract on house, lease agreement, actual title to house, current utility bill or current Round Rock ISD tax statement), child’s Social Security card (recommended, but not required), parent or guardian proof of income (two most recent pay stubs).
If a parent or guardian is unable to attend the Pre-K Rodeo event, campuses will be processing student registrations during school office hours beginning July 19, 2018. Parents or guardians will need to visit the campus the student will be attending with the required documentation to finalize their child’s registration for the 2018-2019 school year.
There is a lot parents and guardians can do before the first day of school to prepare their student to be successful from day one.
Round Rock ISD is proud to team with ReadyRosie to bring parents modeled moments designed to deliver valuable lessons into real life situations in an engaging way. Once registered, parents will receive a weekly playlist of videos that “train” the parent how to connect fun activities with serious learning opportunities. The videos and activities are targeted to children ages 0-5 years old to instill both foundational learning and social skills. Round Rock ISD Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers are also integrating ReadyRosie into the classroom setting and curriculum.
