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.  

Please note that Student Services will be closed from June 26 through July 5th in observance of summer break. All online enrollments will be on hold during this time as Skyward will also be down for end of year maintenance. Student Services will resume online enrollments Monday, July 13. We greatly appreciate your patience as we will have a large number of online enrollments to process. Please be assured that as soon as our enrollment specialists are back on staff and your enrollment application has been processed, you will be contacted with the information needed.

During these times, our main priority is the health and safety of all our families. Due to COVID-19, all summer enrollments will continue to be completed remotely and online for all our new students. Please note that our offices will remain closed to the public and only for specific special situations, we will provide appointments for anyone we need to see in person.

In most districts, attendance zones determine where students will attend school. Our Choice of School program allows parents to select the campus they want their children to attend for the next school year, whether it's down the street or across town.

There are a lot of factors to consider when selecting the best option for your child. We’ve gathered some resources below to help you with this important decision.

Choice of School process

You will make an initial choice as part of the enrollment process and then again when changing school levels, such as moving from elementary to middle school. You also have the opportunity to change each year, if desired, during the Choice of School periods each spring.

See the Choice of School page for more details.

Each school has a designated transportation-eligible zone. Students who live in that zone may be eligible for bus transportation. The transportation-eligible zone, which typically begins about two miles from the school, may vary somewhat from year to year. 

Explore the 2019-20 Transportation Maps.

  • The Bus Eligibility tab shows which schools may provide transportation based on your address. Remember that transportation to magnet program schools is only provided for students that are accepted into the magnet program.

  • The Closest School(s) tab shows which schools are closest to your home.

  • See the transportation eligibility area for each school. The Transportation Maps system also allows you to overlay the map with a layer that displays the bus transportation eligibility area for each school you are interested in.
