Student Continuing from W. H. Burnett

Every year, Terrell ISD students are required to complete updated registration forms for the upcoming school year. This is done online via Parent Portal. Registration forms for the 2023-2024 school year will be available in the spring of 2023. 

New to the District Kindergarten Students

To make enrollment a smooth process for the families of our littlest Tigers we have created step-by-step instructions below. Let’s get started! 


  • Birth Certificate

  • Social Security Card (Preferred)

  • Photo ID of person enrolling new student

  • Immunization Records

  • Proof of Residency- Water or electric bill in guardians' name or Lease/mortgage agreement in guardian's name

In order to register your child, all parents must create a Parent Portal account. Additionally, Parent Portal is where you will check your child's grades and attendance. Below is a guide to help you create a new account along with the link to Parent Portal to get started.
