The application process for Northwest ISD’s tuition-based pre-kindergarten program for the 2021-22 school year is now open, providing families with the opportunity to apply for Pre-K to prepare their students for a school environment.

Tuition-based Pre-K is available for children who live within Northwest ISD boundaries and will be 4 years old by September 1, 2021, but do not meet the eligibility requirements to enroll in state-funded Pre-K. Because class space is limited, tuition-based Pre-K students will be selected through a lottery system.

Lottery registration for the program will be available until 5 p.m. Thursday, April 1, when the application process will close. Students will be drawn for the program based on available classroom space at Berkshire, Curtis, Haslet, Hatfield, Hughes,  Lakeview, Lance Thompson, Nance, Peterson, Seven Hills and Thompson elementary schools.

The lottery drawing will take place the week of April 5, and letters will be emailed to families selected by 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 7.  Those families will then have the opportunity to respond to confirm their intent to register for Pre-K. The registration process will begin Monday, April 19.

Those who are accepted into the tuition-based program will have the opportunity to attend half-day Pre-K. A non-refundable registration fee of $125 is required to hold your place in the tuition program. This payment, which only applies to those chosen from the lottery, will be credited toward the first tuition payment. Tuition for the program is $306.50 per month over 10 months, or a one-time payment of $3,065.
