Upon initial enrollment in a school, the student or parent must produce two current (dated within 90 days) documents reflecting the correct residential street address. Post office boxes, private mail box addresses or commercial establishment addresses are insufficient. Examples of acceptable documents reflecting name and residential street addresses are as follows:
If any TWO of the documents listed above cannot be provided because the parent and student live with someone else, an Affidavit of Residence may be used. The Affidavit of Residence must be notarized by a notary public of the State of Florida. Two proofs of residence from the owner/lease holder who signs the form will be needed.
The Request for Temporary Assignment form must be completed to accompany the notarized Affidavit of Residence, and both forms submitted to the zone school along with the required two proofs of residency for processing. The Request for Temporary Assignment and Affidavit of Residence will require final approval by the Pupil Accounting Department.
