Pre-K & Kindergarten

Kinder ready. College ready. 

The Canutillo Independent School District understands the importance of a strong foundation for students. It is now offering a new full-day pre-kindergarten program free of charge at all campuses for qualified El Paso-area families for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Canutillo is able to provide this opportunity thanks to the passage of House Bill 3, which was signed into law in 2019 and provides state funding for full-day pre-K programs for families who meet certain criteria.

If you are registering your child for the first time in Pre-K or Kinder, and if you have older children who are current students, you will use the same family Parent Portal account login and password for your Pre-K/Kinder child. Parents that are new to registering a student at Canutillo ISD are required to create a new parent portal account.




Steps to enroll a child in Pre-K or Kinder

  1. Submit an application through the Parent Portal.
  2. Application is reviewed by CISD staff for eligibility.
  3. If approved, you will be required to attend a Parent Orientation Session (see scheduled sessions below). 
  4. If your student does not qualify for Pre-K at his/her designated campus, you may still register them for Universal Pre-K at Bill Childress Elementary, on a first come-first served basis.
