ENROLLMENT DOCUMENTATION All students enrolled in the St. Clair County School System must live with a legal custodial parent/guardian. Extenuating circumstances must be approved by the superintendent.

Valid Social Security Card * — disclosure of a students’ social security number is voluntary. The number is used as a student identifier. It will be solely used for state and local statistical purposes. Proof of Immunization — One of the following forms are required by state law and may be obtained from the health department or your child’s doctor:
IMM-50 Alabama Blue Form (Immunizations and Medical Exemptions)
IMM-52 Religious Exemptions

HOMELESS, MIGRANT, NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING, DISABLED Children who are zoned to attend the St. Clair County Schools and who are homeless, migrant, non-English speaking, immigrant, or disabled will have access to a free, appropriate education. Students will not be prohibited from school attendance due to barriers such as:
Lack of Birth Certificate
Lack of Social Security Card
Legal Custody Requirements
Lack of Immunization Records
Lack of School Records or Transcripts
Lack of Transportation
*By federal law and relevant court orders, as well as Alabama Department of Education directives, these documents are not required in order to enroll. The collection of this information is for creation of a unique identifier for students. This is important due to electronic transfer of information of students from one school to another, both within our system and state. Failure to produce these documents does not prevent a student from being enrolled in any St. Clair County School. If a student does not have or can not produce a Social Security number, a unique identifying number, based on a formula unique to the school system, will be used to create the number. NO intent is made or implied to require information regarding any student’s immigration and/or citizenship status.
