Ask HISD: Can the Pre-K age requirement ever be waived?

2013 October 31
by HISD Communications

Q: My son, who is very advanced for his age, won’t turn four until Sept. 2, but because he’ll miss the age-requirement cut-off date by a couple of days, he won’t qualify to enroll in prekindergarten this year. Isn’t there any way the district’s eligibility criteria can be waived?

A: Unfortunately, no. Because the age requirement for preschool students is a State of Texas law rather than an HISD policy, it cannot be circumvented.
