The Educational System can be confusing for new kincare providers. The following information might help to ease this confusion.
Statewide Requirements for Enrollment
Idaho Statute requires proof of identity and birth date to enroll students (with some exceptions—see Homeless Education). This can come in the form of a certified copy of the student’s birth certificate, passport, visa, or other governmental documentation of the child’s identity.
Idaho Code requires some immunization records for school enrollment. To learn about the immunization requirements, programs, and exceptions, see the Law for Immunization Requirements for Idaho School Children.
Individual School District Requirements for Enrollment
Each school district has developed its own enrollment forms and processes. These may include requirements beyond the statewide requirements. To find the requirements for your school, please contact the school district your child will be attending.
Idaho Code and The Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program ensure that any student who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence may attend any school district or school within a district when it is determined to be in the best interest of that child. To learn more about the Education of Homeless Children and Youth Program or to contact a district liaison, please visit Idaho’s Homeless Education website.
