Pre-K and Kindergarten Round-Up!

Gainesville ISD will be hosting 2020-2021 registration round up for all new GISD students entering Pre-K or Kindergarten in the Fall.  Edison Elementary, located at 1 Edison Drive, will be open from 8am-5pm June 1-June 18 and closed on Fridays. It is imperative that all new students are registered prior to the campus closure June 19-July 17.  


Parents of students who will be 4 or 5 years of age before September 1, 2020 are encouraged to attend one of these registration events.  All 4-year-old students entering Pre-K must meet eligibility requirements as required by Texas law. For detailed information on Pre-K eligibility, visit our district website.


Edison staff will be available to answer any enrollment eligibility questions, assist with online registration, and to accept enrollment documentation.   To expedite registration, families of Kindergarten students are encouraged to complete the online registration prior to round-up, and to bring supporting documentation to complete the student’s registration. Computers will also be available for online registration if the process is not able to be completed prior to the event. If the family currently has a student in the district, please add a new student to the existing parent portal account.  If a parent portal account does not yet exist, go to and create a new account.


Documentation requirements include:  parent identification, child’s social security card, birth certificate, proof of residency, immunization record, and proof of income (to determine Pre-K eligibility).


Head Start is also accepting applications for qualifying 3- and 4-year-old students. To make a registration appointment or for qualification questions, please email April Waggoner at
