Photo ID of parent/guardian
Proof of residence - A utility bill with the service address (power, water, etc.), mortgage statement, rental/lease agreement, buyer’s agreement, homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy with address, or a property tax statement. Please note: If a student’s parent or legal guardian does not have a verifiable residence but is living with a resident of Wilkes County, the parent or custodial adult and the county resident may sign a Wilkes County Schools Statement of Residence Affidavit to satisfy the residency requirement. Any of the items listed above can be used as a proof of residence for the county resident. The school will provide the Statement of Residence Affidavit. Please see below for other affidavits that may be needed for other special circumstances.
Proof of guardianship - Can include birth certificate, divorce papers, Social Services paperwork, or paperwork signed by a judge awarding custody. Custody paperwork authorized by a judge or Social Services/foster care placement is required for all children not living with their natural parent. Please note: If a student is living with an adult who is not their parent or legal guardian, there are additional forms that will need to be completed during enrollment. The forms for special circumstances are located at the bottom of this page.
