2014-15 School Registration

July 23rd, 2014

Students who are new to the Cherokee County School System are required to enroll with their parents or legal guardian. Admission to public schools shall be considered on an individual basis based on the application of the
parent/legal guardian of the child to the local board of education at the beginning of each school year, under such rules and regulations as the board may prescribe. To enroll in a Cherokee County School, the following items must be presented to the school principal or his/her designee:

  1. Immunization Records
  2. Social security card or temporary identification number assigned by district office. If you elect not to provide a SSN, a temporary identification number will be generated and utilized instead. Your child’s SSN is being requested for us in conjunction with enrollment in school as provided in Ala. Admin. Code 290-3-1-.02(2)(b)(2). It will be used as a means of identification in the statewide student management system.
  3. Domestic or foreign birth certificate in order to verify age. If a valid birth certificate is not presented, an alternate form of documentation such as religious, hospital or physician’s certificate, adoption record, previously verified school record or other alternative form of documentation may be used to verify age.
  4. Proof of Residence (two utility bills in legal custodial/guardian name)
  5. Previous School Records (report card, disciplinary status, etc.)
