Frisco ISD provides full-day kindergarten at all 43 of our elementary campuses. In order to enroll, students must meet the qualifications below.
A student is able to attend the full-day kindergarten program if he or she is five years of age or older on or before September 1 of the school year.
A student who is younger than five years of age as of September 1 may enter kindergarten if he or she takes the third grade reading and math STAAR test and performs in the Approaches Grade Level category on both assessments .
Kindergarten Qualifications Flowchart
A child may be enrolled in the first grade if he or she is at least six years of age at the beginning of the current school year or has been enrolled in the first grade, or completed kindergarten, in the public schools of another state prior to transferring to the District.
If a student's parent(s) wants the child to enter first grade prior to their 6th birthday and the student's 6th birthday is before December 31, he or she may take the kindergarten acceleration test to see if he or she may be placed in the first grade. This test is administered in the spring for young people who already reside in the District and are seeking a placement for the upcoming school year.
If a student moves into the District in the summer or early fall, they may enter kindergarten and then take the test in the fall and be placed into the first grade accordingly based on the outcome of the test.
If you are moving to Frisco ISD from another state during the school year and have a student in kindergarten, please note that your student may not be eligible for transfer into kindergarten during the current school year. Please contact the campus for more information.
