Enrolling in Homewood City Schools

 

New students must visit the school to enroll; there is no option to enroll electronically. The presence of a parent or court-appointed custodian is required to enroll a student.

To enroll you must be a bona fide resident of Homewood. (To be a bona fide resident, a student must be actually living in a dwelling in Homewood with a parent or court-appointed custodian who is a resident of Homewood on a full time basis.)

Residency verifications, including home visits, may take place as necessary.

To enroll please provide the following items:

  • Proof of Residence - A bona fide deed, current annual tax notice, or current lease in the name of the parent or court-appointed custodian (signed by Lessee and Lessor) or sales contract on a home (a contingency contract is not acceptable) and a current utility bill from Alabama Power or Alabama Gas displaying the service or property address, not the mailing address
  • Official Birth Certificate or other alternative documentation - A document showing that the student is five years of age on or before September 1 for Kindergarten admission and that the student is six years old on or before December 31 for 1st grade admission 
  • An opinion of the attorney general states in effect that under the common law one’s age is computed by including the day of birth so that a given age is obtained the day before the birthday anniversary. Therefore, a child whose sixth birthday falls on September 2 is entitled to attend the public elementary schools at the opening of school for that school year. A child whose fifth birthday falls on September 2 is entitled to attend kindergarten.
  • Current Alabama Certificate of Immunization - provided by a physician or the state health department
  • Custody Papers - If applicable, an official finalized court document signed by the Court 
  • Withdrawal Form - Withdrawal form from your previous school with grades and a current transcript (or report card for summer registration)

     

    All items above must be provided at the time of enrollment. Individual schools may require additional items for enrollment. For more information, contact the school.
