On-Site Registration for Returning & New Students

ALL students in grades K-12 (new and returning) must complete residency verification each year. The list of required documents (shown below) has been updated beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. Each student is required to provide these documents. Please print the student's legal first and last name, as well as the student's grade level for the new school year, at the top of the form.

  • Complete Certificate of Residency (English) (Spanish)
  • Proof of Residence - A current annual property tax notice or current lease in the name of the parent or court-appointed custodian (signed by Lessee and Lessor) or sales contract on a home (a contingency contract is not acceptable). A current lease in the name of the parent (or a letter) that lists the names of all occupants at the address should be provided.
  • Current Utility Bill - A current bill from Alabama Power or Spire in the name of the parent or court-appointed custodian displaying the service or property address, not the mailing address.
  • Custody Papers (If applicable) - A current, official finalized court document signed by the Court
  • Driver's License - A valid driver's license or valid state-issued ID for at least one custodial contact of the student.

The residency verification packet may be submitted by scanning it to the email address of the school's registrar (listed below) for your child's school, mailing to the school to the registrar's attention or delivering to the school on Tuesdays or Thursdays, July 21st through July 30th, between 7:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Please note that mailed packets must be postmarked no later than Saturday, July 25th in order to ensure that they are received at the school by July 30th.

Please be attentive to email, phone, and text notifications from the district that will include the most current information about registration and Back-to-School events for all students and parents.
