- Child’s birth certificate
- Valid picture ID of the parent/guardian enrolling the student
- Child’s Social Security Card

While East Central ISD has committed to offering free Pre-K to ALL four-year-olds who live in the district, the state of Texas requires all school districts to identify and report to the state all students who would have met state qualifications for free Pre-K.
For this reason, parents/guardians are asked if their child has any qualifying criteria from the list HERE and must upload the required documentation along with the required standard registration documents.
Applications will not be accepted unless all required documents are uploaded.
