Tuition Based Pre-K for District Employees

Early Childhood students

WFISD Employees,
Will you be working for WFISD as an employee during the 2024-2025 school year?
Do you have a child who will be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2024?
Is your child not eligible to participate in the state funded pre-k program?

If you answered “yes” to these three questions, then your child is eligible to participate in WFISD’s Tuition Based Pre-k Program for Children of District Employees!
