The person enrolling a student (except homeless students) in the school for the first time will be asked to produce one (1) of the following proofs:

  • A certified copy of the child's birth certificate.
  • Other reliable proof of the student's identity and age, including the student's baptismal certificate, an application for a Social Security number, or original school registration records, and an affidavit explaining the inability to provide a copy of the birth certificate.
  • A letter from the authorized representative of an agency having custody of the student (pursuant to statute) certifying that the student has been placed in the custody of the agency as prescribed by law. 

The parent, guardian, or surrogate will be given thirty (30) days to provide documentation requested as listed above.  If documentation is not provided, a letter will be sent to notify the parent, guardian or surrogate that unless the documentation is provided within ten (10) days, the local law enforcement agency will be notified.

Nothing contained in the policy shall authorize the school to disclose to any person a student's educational record without prior parental consent unless the school makes a determination that disclosure of such records is necessary to protect the health and safety of the student.
