Welcome to the Fort Sam Houston Independent School District! We are honored that you have chosen to enroll your child in our schools and look forward to working with you to ensure your child has an exceptional academic and extracurricular experience here at Fort Sam Houston ISD.
Attendance Areas and Enrollment Requirements
Joint Base San Antonio – Fort Sam Houston and Camp Bullis comprise the geographic boundaries of the Fort Sam Houston Independent School District. Children of military personnel residing on these Installations are eligible to attend Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12. Parents who do not meet this eligibility criteria may be eligible to apply for the Non-Resident Transfer (NRT) program and can learn more about the program at www.fshisd.net. Fort Sam Houston Elementary School, 4351 Nursery Road, serves grades PK-5. Robert G. Cole Middle and High School serves grades 6 – 12 and is located at 4001 Winans Road.
Children must be four years old on or before Sept. 1, 2017 to enroll in pre-kindergarten and meet eligibility criteria established by State law. Children five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2017 may enroll in kindergarten and those six years old on or before Sept. 1, 2017 may enroll in first grade. District transportation is not provided for pre-kindergarten students.
Fort Sam Houston ISD will use an online process to facilitate the registration process for all students, both current and new to the District. Parents benefit as they can complete registration documents 24/7 in the convenience of their home, eliminating the need to wait in lines to fill out paper forms. The process also helps the District reduce paper waste while creating a convenient, fast and accurate online registration experience.
Returning Student Online Registration Process
Parents of students who attended FSHISD schools in the 2016-2017 school year will complete an abbreviated online registration process unless the student was withdrawn at the end of the school year or if the parents have not been assigned quarters as of August 21, 2017.
Parents will update their student’s registration using their secure txConnect parent portal account password at https://txsuite20.txeis.net/tc015914/Login.aspx. While some parents are already utilizing the parent portal to check grades and attendance, parent portal letters will be mailed home to all parents meeting attendance area requirements on May 25, 2017. Please complete the online documents and submit your current proof of residency to the campus registrar's office no later than June 1, 2017.
New Student Online Registration Process
Parents must meet attendance area eligibility requirements to register to attend FSHISD schools. Registering students new to FSHISD, requires a three-step process. First, parents must create a txConnect parent portal account at https://txsuite20.txeis.net/tc015914/Registration.aspx and second, complete enrollment application.
The third step in the registration process requires that parents registering students new to FSHISD bring the following documents to the school to verify eligibility and complete the registration process on the designated campus date/time (see below):
