There are FIVE (5) main documents required of ALL students prior to being enrolled in the District. To help ensure that the enrollment process for your child goes as smoothly as possible, please refer to the following items:
1. PROOF OF RESIDENCY:
Due to the Ohio House Bill HB 21, The Maritime Academy of Toledo is required to obtain 2 proofs of residency annually. We will collect these with the enrollment packets upon enrollment or re-enrollment and if your family has moved during the school year.
The Maritime Academy of Toledo will also conduct monthly reviews of the residency records of its’ students. This adds additional responsibility to parents to keep their records up to date. Thank you for your diligence in this matter.
2. CERTIFICATE OF IMMUNIZATION:
3. PROOF OF BIRTH DATE:
A religious record authorized by a religious official
An official school transcript
Affidavit of age
5. SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER:
An official copy of the student’s Social Security card/number is required for enrollment.
EXCEPTIONS TO THE ABOVE MENTIONED RULES:
Homeless Children (McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act)
Any parent/guardian who may be living in a homeless situation should complete Form JBC(1)-1 (Student Residency Statement) and contact the Family Liasion: Ruth Shaver.
OTHER DOCUMENTS NEEDED FOR ENROLLMENT
6. A valid transcript and a withdrawal form from the student’s previous school is essential for appropriate academic placement. Parents who can not provide a valid transcript and a withdrawal form from the previous school must fill out Form JBC-8 (Authorization to Release Records) to enroll their student on a conditional basis. Any student who is enrolling in the District for the first time in grades seven or higher must provide a discipline record from the school previously attended in order to be granted full admission status. Refer to Form JBC-9 (Disclosures Required for Conditional Admission). Form JBC-9 must be completed at the time of enrollment.
7. For those students enrolling in the Special Education Program: the parent/guardian may provide a copy of the student’s latest IEP.
