Sherman ISD Announces Early Childhood and Kindergarten Round-Up Dates

SISD
Jefferson Elementary may soon become the new home for Sherman Independent School District's Early Head Start program. District officials are considering using the school to replace the Perrin Learning Center as the district's alternative education campus.

Sherman ISD is excited to announce the opening of the Pre-K pre-application and kindergarten roundup registration for the 2021-2022 school year. SISD will open Kindergarten Roundup registration online on April 1. Pre-application registration for Pre-K, Early Head Start, and Head Start will open online on  Tuesday, April 6, through Tuesday, April 13. 

In the upcoming school year, Sherman ISD will be expanding its early childhood program to two different locations. In addition to the Fred Douglass Early Childhood Center, Perrin Early Childhood Center will be SISD’s newest campus for early childhood education and the current Jefferson campus will house the Early Head Start program. Perrin Early Childhood Center will be located northwest of Sherman at 81 Vandenburg Dr. Denison, TX 75020, and the current Jefferson Elementary campus will transition next school year.
