Documents Required for Enrollment
Student Transfer Forms: 713-556-6783
Every school district requires identification of each student as a
condition of enrollment, which must be under a studentís legal name as
shown on that studentís birth certificate or other legal document. The
parent or legal guardian must furnish documentation of the studentís
identity, age, and residence and a copy of the studentís records within 30
days of enrollment (or 90 days if the student was born outside the U.S.).
If the student does not have a Social Security number, HISD will assign a
Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) number. No student
may be denied enrollment solely because of failure to meet the
documentation requirements. Enrollment is provisional, however, pending
receipt of the required documentation and verification of eligibility.
A parent or legal guardian who resides with relatives or friends within
HISD and who wishes to send a child to an HISD school must submit a
statement of residence. The parent or guardian must complete the statement
at the zoned school and must supply the following:
A letter from the
official resident of the address at which the applicant is living, stating
how long the applicant has lived at that address
The name of the
school the student attended most recently
A copy of the
official residentís most recent bill for electricity, gas, or water; and
If the residence
is an apartment, a valid lease giving the name of the official resident.
(For assistance, call the Student Transfer Department at 713-556-6734.)
If your child is entering HISD from another school district, you will also
need a record of current immunizations and his or her most recent report
card. The school will also request an academic transcript from your
childís previous school. More information and forms may be found on the
HISD Health & Medical Services Web site.
