Parents or guardians must accompany their child to the registration appointment and bring the following original documentation:

1) Proof of birth date for the student (birth certificate or passport)

2) Proof of guardianship (parents’ or guardians’ as shown on birth certificate or other appropriate legal documentation such as landed immigrant paper or guardianship order). Note that a notarized custodial guardian appointment is not the same as a guardianship order granted by the courts
