New Students

Children who turn 5 years-old by September 1 are eligible for enrollment in Kindergarten for that school year. 

Begin the enrollment journey by creating an account in Parent Portal. As you move through the online enrollment process, there are a number of pieces of information you will need to have available in a digital format (Photos are acceptable). Gathering this information beforehand will speed up the process significantly. You will need:

  • Student's Birth Certificate
  • Immunization Record
  • Student's Social Security Card
  • Proof of Guardianship
  • Proof of Residency (i.e., utility bill)

Returning Students

Tarkington ISD requires returning students' parents/guardians to complete an annual verification of student registration to confirm contact information and renew annual agreements and policy revisions. As part of the returning student registration process, parents will be required to submit a new proof of residency form each year. This is done online through Parent Portal

Returning students must complete this annual registration BEFORE the date campuses are set to distribute schedules for the upcoming school year. Returning student online registration will open on May 1st.
