Enrollment up at AISD pre-K and kindergarten

Wednesday, April 13, 2022 by Elizabeth Pagano

Preliminary registration numbers for AISD pre-K and kindergarten have doubled over last spring, after a district-wide registration campaign. Pre-K registrations are up 188 percent compared to 2021 and kindergarten registrations are up 123 percent. That is welcome news to the district, which failed to meet enrollment expectations throughout the pandemic. According to a press release from AISD, Summit, Baldwin, Barrington, Padron and Pickle were the top five campuses in terms of registration. “What these numbers tell me is that there is a pent-up demand in Austin coming out of the pandemic for our high-quality pre-K and kindergarten options,” Alejandro Delgado, district enrollment executive director, said in a statement to the press.
