To enroll a student, you must have the following information for the student:  Certified Birth Certificate (no copies, must be original), Social Security Card, two forms of Proof of Residency (purchase or rental agreement and a utility bill), Immunization Records, and Custody Papers (if applicable).  A copy of the student’s previous report card is helpful, but not required.  If your child receives special services, please bring a copy of the IEP/MFE.  All paperwork must be received before your child may attend school.

If you are living with someone in the district and your name is not on the lease, deed or title, you will need to obtain a Residency Verification form to complete and have notarized.
