WHAT do I bring?
Parents will be required to provide the following documents when enrolling their children for school:

3. Child’s birth certificate or other documents suitable as proof of the child’s identity.

Proof of Residency
At the time of registration, the parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control of the student under order of a court must present proof of residency in the District as required by law.
The District may investigate residency as necessary to verify that the parent/guardian currently resides in the District with the present intention to remain (TEC Ch. 25). The parent/guardian will provide two documents from the following groups:
Lease agreement with landlord contact
Closing statement on home
Non-Resident Students must complete and submit an approved transfer request. Contact the campus office for details.
Verification of Residency Information
In accordance with law, the District may make reasonable inquiries to determine whether the student is a resident of the District. Based on an individual’s circumstance, the District may grant exceptions to the requirement to produce a document listed above. When required by law, the District will waive the requirement to prove residency in the District boundaries.
Proof of a student’s residency will be waived under the following circumstances:
When the student or the student’s parent or guardian is a participant in the attorney general’s address confidentiality program for victims of family violence, sexual assault, or stalking. The District must accept a substitute post office box address designated by the attorney general if it is presented by a parent or student participating in the program.
When the student is homeless as defined by law. [See FDC.]
