Social Security Number – The school system complies with the provisions of O.C.G.A. § 20-2-150, which requires a person enrolling the student to provide a copy of the student’s social security number or to sign a form (available at each school) stating that the person does not wish to provide the social security number.
Documentation for Homeless Students – Homeless students, as defined by the McKinney-Vento Act, shall be enrolled immediately with full participation in school activities, regardless of whether required documentation can be provided at the time of enrollment. The designated employee responsible for care of homeless students shall assist the person enrolling the homeless student or the unaccompanied youth in acquiring the necessary documents for enrollment in accordance with the requirements of the state enrollment rule and the Act.
Residency – W-2 or W-4 form OR a Property Tax Assessment Form from Meriwether County OR a lease OR mortgage form OR a driver’s license OR voter registration for proof of residence.
The Meriwether County School System will not deny enrollment for any student registering at any of our schools due to lack of evidence of residency, age, immunization.
