Alternative Proof of Residence If the student does not have two documents to verify residence… …admit student temporarily (up to 30 calendar days) during which time the student must submit a sworn affidavit from a landlord certifying that the student’s parent or guardian resides in Mobile County. If the student cannot produce such a document, Student Services can issue a letter stating that they have determined that there is a valid reason for the lack of evidence (e.g. homelessness) and that the request for enrollment is reasonable. Student Support Services Principals’ Handbook (page 19)
Alternative to Birth Certificate If the student does not have a valid birth certificate… …a valid passport or some other acceptable document may be substituted. If no proof of age is available, the parent may request a 90-day birth certificate extension from Student Services.
Immunization Proof of Immunization The only acceptable proof of immunization is the State of Alabama Certificate of Immunization that is issued by the Alabama Department of Health. This can be obtained at the Mobile County Health Department. If the parent indicates that the immunization form was submitted to a prior school, the student should be admitted on a temporary basis, not to exceed 30 calendar days, pending receipt of the student’s records. This process should be monitored closely until the certificate is obtained.
