Next Steps 

Once you receive your application status, there are steps you must take to secure your place: 

* If your child was accepted: Accept the offered seat either online (for parents who submitted an online application) or in person. Provide the school with documents listed below and sign the entrance agreement, if applicable. You will have 2 weeks to accept the offered seat and make arrangements with the school to submit the following documents: 

  • Proof of current residence 
  • Proof of age (if your child is entering Pre-K or kindergarten) 
  • The school will be able to provide a copy of an entrance agreement that you will be required to sign. 

For Phase 2 offers on or after Feb. 28, 2020, parents will have one week to accept the seat and make arrangements with the school to submit the required documents and sign an entrance agreement at the school to secure the seat. 

* If your child was wait-listed: Stay alert for changes in application status by visiting your dashboard and the choice status page. You can also submit an application to programs that still have space available that are posted on our website ( and apply during Phase II. Phase III application submission is for students new to HISD or for Out of District students wishing to enroll in HISD for the first time.
