What to bring when you register your child:
- Proof of Residency in the Mountain View School District
Proof of residency acceptable documentation includes: a deed, a lease, current utility bill, current credit card bill, property tax bill, vehicle registration, driver’s license, DOT identification card. A district may require that more than one form of residency confirmation be provided. The Mountain View School District requires two proofs of residency at enrollment. However, school districts and charter schools should be flexible in verifying residency and should consider what information is reasonable in light of the family’s situation. If a student meets the requirements as stated in the McKinney-Vento Act, the provisions under the act will be followed by the school district.
ONLY the biological parent/adoptive parent or court appointed guardian may enroll a student in MVSD and the parent/guardian must come into the office in person to complete the enrollment process. If a resident of the District requests that a student be enrolled whose parent(s) live outside the District, an Affidavit must be completed by both the resident of the District and the natural parent(s). If the natural parent is not able to appear in person, then their signature must be notarized.
- Proof of Guardianship
Legal custody agreement (if applicable) a copy to be placed in the student’s file.
- Proof of Age
Original state issued Birth Certificate of student. If unavailable, a notarized copy of birth certificate, baptismal certificate or record of baptism showing date of birth or a passport showing date of birth.
- Record of Immunizations
State law requires that a complete record of immunizations be provided. You can get a copy of your child’s health records from the school you are withdrawing from. Shot records are also available from you doctor’s office. Physicals are also required at certain grade levels. (It is necessary to have the name and address of the previous school to obtain records).
If you have a copy of your student’s most recent report card or transcript, please bring a copy with you to the enrollment appointment. Also, if your student has an IEP, 504 or any special services requirements, it is helpful if you bring a copy with you to the enrollment appointment. We will do everything we can to make your new student registration a smooth process and answer any of your questions before you leave. We look forward to you and your family becoming flying eagles!
