HPISD schools include:
An elementary student will be placed in his/her attendance zone school unless the student requires a special program only offered at another campus or the grade level at that campus is full. If there is no space available, the student will be placed at an elementary campus within HPISD that has classroom space. The student’s name may be added to a waiting list until space becomes available at the campus in the student's attendance zone. All of HPISD’s elementary schools are excellent, and all have the highest ratings from the State of Texas.

Please read through the following three options to determine if you are a new, current or former HPISD Skyward user.
STEP 2: SKYWARD FORMS

Helpful hints for successfully completing online enrollment forms:
STEP 3: PREPARE REQUIRED DOCUMENTS
It is recommended that you have PDF files (HEIC files cannot be read by the system) scanned and ready to upload prior to accessing the New Student Enrollment Document Upload form in Step 4. This will minimize any delay in processing your child’s enrollment due to missing required documents. See all required documents below.
STEP 4: DOCUMENT UPLOAD
Click here for the New Student Enrollment Document Upload Form to access the secure online form to which you can upload the required documents. Once all documentation has been submitted, parents will be notified by campus staff of any incomplete documentation needed or completion of the enrollment process.
Parents may click on the following resources for additional assistance in completing the enrollment process.
|Annual Back to School Sign Up is a process that each family completes online in late July through early August. During this annual online process, you will update family information and required documents as well as have the opportunity to pay for supplies, yearbooks, directories, spirit wear, etc. Your Skyward login and password will be used to complete Back to School Sign Up.
Annual Proof of Residency is a process each family must complete every summer prior to the beginning of school. If the residency paperwork is complete and current from the enrollment process (deed or updated lease in addition to a driver’s license at the same address), then you will only be required to submit a new water or electric bill for the address where you reside. If the residency documents on file are incomplete or do not match the submitted utility bill, you will be required to provide new residency documents that match. Requirements and submission procedures will be available on the District’s website in late July.
