Parents and guardians can enroll online at enroll.tulsaschools.org or by visiting the district’s Enrollment Center at 2819 S. New Haven Ave. in Tulsa. The Enrollment Center is open on weekdays from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., except for school holidays.
To help working parents and guardians, the Enrollment Center will offer extended hours on the following dates:
· Saturday, Aug. 12 from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
· Monday, Aug. 14 from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
· Tuesday, Aug. 15 from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m.
To complete enrollment, parents and guardians will need a government-issued photo ID, the child's birth certificate and immunization records, and proof of residence – such as a utility bill or rental agreement. These documents can be attached to the online enrollment application using a scanner or by uploading a picture from a smart phone. Parents who plan to enroll at the Enrollment Center should bring these documents with them.
“There is no doubt that pre-kindergarten is a life-changer for children,” said Superintendent Deborah A. Gist. “Students who start school in pre-kindergarten are more likely to read at grade-level by third grade, master middle grade math concepts, and earn a high school diploma.
“Tulsans are also fortunate to be able to enroll their kids in some of the best pre-kindergarten programs in the nation! I encourage every parent with a three- or four-year-old to contact us and learn about the options available to their families.”
