Alto ISD shall ensure that appropriate measures are taken to verify, on enrollment, that a student is entitled to enroll in the district under the TEC, §25.001.
The required records are:
Student birth certificate or other proof of identity
Proof of parent identity
Student's records from the school most recently attended
Registration Packet, including Student Residency Questionnaire Form
Proof of residency such as Housing Lease
Social Security number for PEIMS purposes*
*Note: A student shall not be denied enrollment pending receipt of SSN.
If the student’s entitlement is contingent on the residency of a person, examples of methods of verifying residency include lease information or verifying with designated district personnel that the applicable residence is within the boundaries of your district. Residency is not defined by an address on a driver’s license, a signature on a lease, or the address on a utility bill. These are indicators that may expedite verifying residency, but the absence of such indicators is not conclusive that the student is not a resident. The traditional basic residence criteria are living in the district and having the present intention to remain there. A student who does not reside in Texas is not entitled to enroll in a Texas public school under the TEC, §25.001, on the basis of another person’s residency, including the residency of the student’s parent or grandparent.
