Registration

  • If you are new to the Williamson area, please complete and return to the District Office the school district census form (see link below). The information provided on this form will assist the district in determining the future needs of the district.

    To register a student in the Williamson Central School District, the Student Registration Sheet must be completed (see link below) and certain information must be provided:

    1. Documents that establish proof of residency within the District: 

    Such documents may include but are not limited to:
    (1) a copy of a residential lease or proof of ownership of a house or condominium, such as a deed or mortgage statement;
    (2) a statement by a third-party landlord, owner or tenant from whom the parent(s) or person(s) in parental relation leases or with whom they share property within the district, which may be either sworn or unsworn, or
    (3) such other statement by a third party establishing the parent(s)’ or person(s) in parental relation’s physical presence in the District. 

    If such documentation listed above is not available, the District shall consider other forms of documentation and/or information establishing physical presence in the District, in lieu of those described above, which may include but are not limited to: 
    (1) pay stub;
    (2) income tax form;
    (3) utility or other bills;
    (4) membership documents (
    e.g., library cards) based on residency;
    (5) voter registration document(s);
    (6) official driver’s license, learner’s permit, or non-driver identification;
    (7) state or other government-issued identification;
    (8) documents issued by federal, state, or local agencies (
    e.g., local social service agency, federal Office of Refugee Resettlement); or
    (9) evidence of custody of the child, including but not limited to judicial custody orders or guardianship papers.   

    The District may also require the parent(s) or person(s) in parental relation to provide an affidavit either:
    (1) indicating that they are the parent(s) with whom the child lawfully resides; or
    (2) indicating that they are the person(s) in parental relation to the child, over whom they have total and permanent custody and control, and describing how they obtained total and permanent custody and control, whether through guardianship or otherwise. 
    The District may also accept other proof, such as documentation indicating that the child resides with a sponsor with whom the child has been placed by a federal agency.  The District will not require submission of a judicial custody order or an order of guardianship as a condition of enrollment. 

    2. Documents that establish the student’s age:

    Where a certified transcript of a birth certificate or record of baptism (including a certified foreign birth certificate or record of baptism) giving the date of birth is available, the District will not require or use any other form of evidence to determine the student’s age.

    If no certified transcript of a birth certificate or record of baptism is available, the District may use a passport (including a foreign passport) to determine the student’s age. 

    If neither a certified transcript of a birth certificate or record of baptism nor a passport are available, the District may consider certain other documentary or recorded evidence in existence two (2) years or more to determine the student’s age, including but not limited to the following:

    (1) official driver’s license;
    (2) state or other government-issued identification;
    (3) school photo identification with date of birth;
    (4) consulate identification card;
    (5) hospital or health records;
    (6) military dependent identification card;
    (7) documents issued by federal, state or local agencies (e.g., local social service agency, federal Office of Refugee Resettlement);
    (8) court orders or other court-issued documents;
    (9) Native American tribal documents; or
    (10) records from non-profit international aid agencies and voluntary agencies.

    If any of the 10 other types of age documentation listed directly above originates from a foreign country, the District may request verification of such documentary evidence from the appropriate foreign government or agency, consistent with the requirements of the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (20 U.S.C. § 1232g).  Such request and verification shall not delay the enrollment process. 

    3. Up-to-date Immunization Record

    4. Custody papers (if applicable)

    Other information that assists in the placement of student (but this information is not required for registration or enrollment):

    1. Recent report card

    2. IEP (if special education student)
