• REQUIRED DOCUMENTS

    New to the Jackson County School System? Changing schools because of a move? You will need to provide the following:

        • Proof of residency in the parent/guardian’s name must be presented at the time of registration. Without residency documentation, your child(ren) cannot be registered. The following are acceptable:
            • Copy of home settlement statement or mortgage statement.
            • Copy of current lease agreement signed by landlord (handwritten notes are not accepted).
            • Copy of current utility bill/service connection with parent/guardian’s name and service address.
            • Copy of current homeowner’s insurance statement with parent/guardian’s name and address.

    *Please note:  If living arrangements are a multi-residence or a shared household, and the parent/guardian is not the homeowner or head of household, a Student Residency Questionnaire and a Certificate of Multi-Family Residence form must be completed, notarized, and on file. The school can provide notary if needed.

    AND, if you are new to the Jackson County School System, you also must provide the following:

        • Student’s Birth Certificate, hospital-issued birth record, or religious birth record. *
            • Proof of Guardianship/Custody Agreement is required when both birth parents are listed on the birth certificate but do not live in the same household.
        • Child’s Social Security Card or signed waiver (SSN waiver available at time of registration).
        • Parent/guardian proof of identification (examples are: Photo ID, passport, work badge, etc.).
        • Signed Authorization to Release Records and Disclosures.
        • Transcript or last report card from previous school with current grades and promotion information (grades 9 through 12 must have previous records prior to scheduling classes).
        • Georgia Department of Public Health Form 3300 – Vision, Hearing, Dental, and Nutrition Screening. Available through/conducted by the local health department or a Georgia physician. Required for children entering Georgia schools for the first time.
        • Georgia Immunization Form 3231. Available only through the Health Department or a Georgia physician.

    * Additional information regarding birth certificates/records:
         * If your child was NOT born in Georgia
    , check with the Vital Records office in the state of birth; many states offer similar services online.
         * If your child was born in Georgia
    , the Vital Records Department of Jackson County, which is part of the Probate Court, can provide a certified copy of the birth certificate for a small fee. With proper ID and $25, you can get a certified copy of the birth certificate on the spot — even if there are issues you can usually get one within ~72 hours. Click here to read more, BUT don’t be put off by the “download and mail this form” statement — you CAN go in person and get the BC on the spot or apply in person for the 72-hour version.
