RETURNING STUDENTS, 2021-2022

  • The Online Data Verification Portal for Returning Students will launch June 28 and close July 11. Unlike previous years, families of returning students will complete residency certification online. Therefore, the entire process has been updated to be digital. This means that families will be uploading documents to the portal instead of bringing these to the schools.  Please continue reading the information below regarding the documents that will be required.

     The links below will be live on June 28, 2021.

     

     

    If you are an employee of Homewood City Schools and planning to enroll your child who lives out-of-district, please complete the digital form below. The paper form has been retired as of April 2021. Your submission will automatically be submitted to Dr. Kevin Maddox at the Homewood Board of Education.
