Online Registration for Returning Students

All Dickinson ISD families must complete the district's online registration process for returning students from August 1-7, 2024. These are students who attended a Dickinson ISD campus at the end of the 2023-2024 school year and will be returning for the 2024-2025 school year.

The online registration process of verifying and updating information and uploading a current proof of residency must be complete by August 7 in order for the student to ride a bus the first week of school. In the past, parents of returning students had to complete online registration but still bring a copy of a current proof of residency to the campus. However, the proof of residency feature is now part of the online registration process. If for some reason, the parent is unable to upload a proof of residency document, the parent can drop off a copy of the document at the child's school before August 7.

Proof of residency can be a copy of a parent's current lease agreement or mortgage statement, their most recent tax receipt indicating home ownership or a current utility bill (electronic, gas or water) from the past month. This document must be in the name of the parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control of the student. If the parent can't provide one of the documents in his or her name, then the parent must complete the "Parent's/Guardian's Assurance of Bona Fide Residence" packet at the campus.

In order to complete the online registration process, parents must have their login information (user name and password) for Skyward Family Access. If a parent does not have login information, this can be obtained by showing proper identification in the front office at their child’s school. Please make sure you have obtained login information ahead of time so you are not delayed in registering your student online. For parents without access to the Internet, computers and assistance are available at the campuses during designated times to complete the online registration process. Please call the school for specific dates and times when computer assistance is available.

Dickinson ISD's newest Gators in pre-kindergarten classes will attend a full-day of school from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m. just like students in the other elementary school grades. Pre-kindergarten is available to students who turn four on or before September 1, 2024 and meet one of the qualifying criteria.

The goal of the Dickinson ISD Prekindergarten program is to ensure that prekindergarten students entering kindergarten will be ready to learn and receive a solid foundation of skills needed to be successful in every school year, Pre-K through 12th grade.

Prekindergarten prepares children for kindergarten and beyond.  It teaches students important social, physical, emotional, and thinking skills they need for success. Experts agree that children who attend a high quality early childhood program have better skills in areas such as communication, reading, numeracy, problem solving, and socialization throughout their education.

The Dickinson ISD full day. Prekindergarten Program utilizes a curriculum that addresses all ten domains of the Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines, which are listed below:

  1. Social and emotional development
  2. Language and communication
  3. Emergent literacy reading
  4. Emergent literacy writing
  5. Mathematics
  6. Science
  7. Social Studies
  8. Fine Arts
  9. Physical development and health
  10. Technology



All seven elementary campuses in the Dickinson ISD offer prekindergarten programs. 

In late spring of each school year, campuses in the district host Prekindergarten Round Up information sessions and early registration.  Please visit the district website for more information.  Registration information is also communicated through “Gator Bytes” news. 

All students entering the program are assessed with a readiness instrument for the student’s literacy development.  All prekindergarten teachers are certified and have been trained to implement a high-quality prekindergarten program.  A progress monitoring instrument is used at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year to determine student growth.

First day of school is August 15

Transition Day is August 14


Students entering pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and grades 4, 5, 6, and 9 will have the opportunity to get ready for the 2024- 2025 school year and a new campus by participating in the district's new Transition Day. On Wednesday, August 14, students entering these grades will be treated to a special day to become acquainted with their new campus, teachers, schedules and school procedures before the return of all students and the official start of the school year on Thursday, August 15. 


Dickinson ISD hopes that providing this day focused on these grade levels will help ease the fear and anxiety students sometimes experience when moving into a new set of grade levels at a different campus. By having these students start a day earlier, campus administrators and teachers will have dedicated time to help the students adjust to the campus and answer questions before other grade levels return. The schedule for the day will run like a normal school day with buses picking up and dropping off students and breakfast and lunch meals in the school cafeteria.


Campuses are busy customizing Transition Day plans to meet the needs of their campus students. Parents and students will receive more information about Transition Day in August before the start of the 2024-2025 school year.
