Please be advised that for the safety and security of all children only biological parents or legal guardians may register a child into our district. Also, the person who registers any child will be required to present the following documentation:
Parent Photo ID or Guardianship / Custody papers (if applicable)
Residency: TWO proofs of residence from within the Waterford Unified School District from the following list.
CURRENT mortgage/property tax bill or rental/lease agreement
CURRENT utility bill (MID, PG&E or City of Waterford Water/Sewer) with correct name and address
Shared Residency Affidavit, if applicable
Age Verification: To prove age, the school district may accept any the following (Education Code section 48002)
Certified copy of the birth record
Statement by the local registrar or county recorder certifying the date of birth
When none of the foregoing is obtainable, an affidavit of the parent, guardian, or custodian, or any other appropriate means of proving the child’s age
Emergency contact information: the name, address/telephone information for someone to contact other than the parent in case of an emergency, including health care provider contact information.
Individualized Education Plan (IEP) if your child is receiving special education services
Student Transcript/ Report Cards for transferring students in Grades 9-12, for all previous high school classes taken and check-out grades, if during the school year.
Immunization record: Complete record of immunizations for the child (TDAP required for Grades 7-12)
All immunizations must be current as required by California State Law (Health and Safety Code, Sections 120325-120375 (formerly Sections 3380-3390); California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Sections 6000-6075)
Although SB277 does not allow for personal belief exemptions, it does allow for medical and homeschooling/independent study exemptions. The medical exemption can only be obtained from a licensed medical doctor (M.D.) or a doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.). There is not a specific form for the medical exemption. Instead, a doctor must generate a letter on official letterhead with the following information:
Confirmation that immunization is not recommended based on the child's physical or medical condition.
Identification of which vaccines are being exempted.
A statement of whether the medical exemption is permanent or temporary.
Signed and dated by the medical provider.
Families that lack stable housing due to economic hardship can immediately register their child(ren) in school without the regularly required documentation. Parents/guardians do need to provide this documentation at a later date. Please let a staff person know if this is your situation. Placement of families in transition or foster children is a high priority for registration, and we will work with families to get their children registered.
