Online enrollment open for PK-12
Students new to Garland ISD may enroll online for both the current school year and the upcoming 2020-21 school year.
Welcome! We’re delighted that you’ve chosen to join the Garland ISD family. The enrollment process described below will mark the start of your child's customizable and exceptional education experience.
We encourage you to start the enrollment process early to help ensure your child secures a spot at the desired school or one near your home. The three steps to complete enrollment are listed below.
GISD welcomes all students located within school district boundaries for K-12 enrollment. To be eligible, a student must be at least 5 years old on or before Sept. 1 of the intended school year.
Have copies of the following documents to enroll:
child's birth certificate (if available)
child's immunization records (state law requires that students are current with immunizations to enroll in school)
child's social security card (if available)
child's recent report card (if applicable)
To prove that you live within district boundaries, please provide either:
contract, lease agreement or mortgage statement*
most current water, gas or electric bill*
*All proof of residency must show a service address and be dated within the last 30 days.
Note: If you are currently living with another person and the proof of residency is in that person's name, both you and that person will need to sign a notarized affidavit. This can be done in the Manuel & Maria Valle Student Services or Enrollment Center offices.
Families who are enrolling for the current year or 2020-21 school year may do so through our online portal, Skyward. A laptop or cell phone may be used as long as it can access an internet browser and has a stable internet connection.
Please allow plenty of time to finalize your enrollment.
Note that some circumstances may require special forms, signatures of other parties or a notary.
During enrollment, you will:
If your student's home language is a language other than English, the Enrollment Center will conduct a language test for your child. This test is used to determine how to best meet your student’s needs and can take up to three hours depending on the age and ability level of your student.
If you are enrolling for the current year, our goal is to have your child on our online learning platform as soon as possible. All 2020-21 applications will be processed remotely.
We appreciate your patience as we have changed our process during these uncertain times. Student Services is excited to welcome you to Garland ISD!
