    OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FOR PARENTS:

    • Proof of Residency** must be provided for all new students and those who have moved to a new residence.
    • All transfers from out-of-state or non-public schools will be placed on hold until student records are reviewed. Therefore, providing records could expedite the process.
    • If a student has a medical condition, please provide documentation from a medical provider.
    • If your child currently receives Special Education Services, bring a copy of the current IEP or 504 Plan.
    • A Release of Records must be signed at the school where your child is enrolling for us to request records from his/her previous school.

Your application will NOT be processed and your student will NOT be given an enrollment for the upcoming school year until/unless you verify the address. NOTE: If legal custody of a child is split between two parents, in addition to the documents listed above, you must also attach a certified copy of the court order so primary residency can be established.  You are responsible to immediately inform the school of any changes to the court order.
