The Coldspring-Oakhurst Consolidated Independent School District will be accepting new student registration at all campuses beginning Tuesday, Aug. 4, through Friday, Aug. 14. Registration times are 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. with the exception of Thursday, Aug. 6, and Thursday, Aug. 13, when registration will be from noon to 6:30 p.m. The district will be closed Friday, Aug. 7.
Registration for new students in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten is going on now at James Street Elementary from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The following documents are required to enroll:
· certified birth certificate
· social security card (card required)
· Proof of physical residence (such as a utility bill)

Pre-K is a full day program and spaces are limited, so come out early to secure a place at JSE. To qualify for the Pre-K program, the student must be four years-old on or before Sept. 1, 2015, come from a family with an income at or below subsistence levels according to standards set by the State Board of Education, or is unable to speak the English Language. A tuition-based program is available for families who don’t meet income or language-based requirements.
To register a non-tuition-based pre-kindergartener, the following information is also required: food stamp verification, Medicaid/CHIPS/family insurance verification, a 2013 income tax return, and check stubs for the previous three months as proof of income.
There will be no new student registration on the first day of school, Monday, Aug. 24. New student-registration will resume during normal school hours on Tuesday, Aug. 25.
