Well just yesterday, we had a parent come to enroll her student. They were coming from Virginia, and the parent did not have the documents that we require to enroll our students. First and foremost, she did not have proof of residency. She said that they were in the process of leasing a townhome, but she didn't yet have the lease. I explained that the district requires a water bill, electric bill or gas bill. I told her that we may be able to accept a letter from the lessor, on the lessors letterhead, if it indicated that they had put money down and were approved to lease the townhome. I told her that the letter must include the date of the lease commencement. I told her that I would have to check with our Student Services office to confirm that such a letter would be acceptable. We both want to get the student back in school.
