Registration for the 2023-2024 school year is now open online. New Alief residents can also register students for the current school year at

This early start to registration offers families the opportunity to complete required forms and get information on programs, transportation and other services. Online registration is available in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. Non-Alief residents can also apply for limited open enrollment on the web.

“Parents are realizing that Alief ISD is the smart choice when deciding where your child receives an education,” Kimberly Smith, Director of Public Relations, explains. “From our innovative full-day Pre-K programs, distinguished curriculum, and blue ribbon schools to STEM-based programs, industry certifications, nationally ranked athletics and recognized fine arts programs, Alief ISD has something special for any school-aged student.”

The Alief website offers information on options such as the High Schools of Choice; dual-language immersion programs in English, Spanish, and Mandarin; and the newly dedicated Jefferson and Martinez Early Learning Centers, which opened in August 2022 to offer interactive pre-kindergarten education.

In addition, the online registration system includes forms newly added to the site, including Socioeconomic status form, Lunch Application, Attendance agreement, Residency questionnaire, Transportation and ridership policies and rules, and Parent and Student Acknowledgement page, offering the convenience of electronic submission for documents formerly only available on paper.

Registration is available 24/7 year-round, although special programs have application deadlines.
