Still need to register your child for the upcoming school year? Thankfully, it's not too late!
The Birmingham City School System is having late registration Monday, July 27 through Thursday, July 30. Contact your child's school for additional information. The first day of school is Friday, August 7.
Information from the Birmingham City Schools Website:
"Most parents and legal guardians should go to their children's schools to register them. This includes kindergarten students, students who are returning to the same school, students who are making the transition to middle or high school and students with approved first-time transfers.
The registration schedule is:
Monday, July 27 - 8 a.m. to noon and 1:30p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Tuesday, July 28 - 8 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Wednesday, July 29 - 8 a.m. to noon and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Thursday, July 30 - 8 a.m. to noon and 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
To register, parents must prove residency by providing a deed or lease and two utility bills. New students need an original birth certificate, social security card and blue Alabama immunization form. Parents must have photo identification. Legal guardians also must present court papers.
Some parents need to go to the Attendance Department at the Davis Center, 417 29th St. South. Those include parents of students who are new to the school system, students who have been home schooled, homeless students, English as a Second Language students who are new to the system and students whose parents cannot prove residency because they live with someone else.
Attendance Department hours through July are 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. The hours for August are 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For more information, call the Attendance Department at 231-7940, 231-7932 or 231-7937.
