    Hello,


    With Kindergarten Roundup approaching, Texas.gov is reminding parents that they can go directly to Texas.gov and order a certified birth certificate for $22, the same price as a walk-in or mail order. This online service, offered in English and Spanish, provides parents with a straightforward, secure option for ordering their child’s birth certificate. The orders are fulfilled by the Texas Department of State Health Services.


    Attached are flyers, in English and Spanish, with more information and a link to a helpful video demonstration found on the Texas.gov YouTube channel on how to order a birth certificate online. We encourage you to share this information with your parents and staff throughout the district/school news outlets. The flyer is grayscale for easy printing, and can also be sent as an attachment for email announcements, eBackpacks, and online newsletters.


    Please let me know if you have any questions or would like more information. Thanks for helping us spread the word about this convenient service!


    Use these links to share via Twitter and/or Facebook: Certified birth certificates for #KindergartenRoundUp can be ordered online from Texas.gov. http://bit.ly/1ae5UXF
