The following forms of documentation may demonstrate a student's eligibility for enrollment in the district.  Particular documentation necessary to demonstrate eligibility under specific provisions in law will be indicated in the appropriate section of the registration form.

        *  Evidence of property ownership, tenancy or residency; including but not limited to property tax bill, deed, contract of sale, lease, mortgage or signed letter from landlord.

      *  Evidence of personal attachments to particular location;  including but not limited to voter registration, license, permit, financial account information, utility bills or delivery receipt.

       *  Evidence of court or agency placements or directives; including but not limited to court order or state agency agreement.

        *  Evidence of expenditures demonstrating personal attachment to particular location; including but not limited to receipts, bills, cancelled checks or, where applicable, support of the student.

       *  Evidence of circumstances demonstrating, where applicable, family or economic hardship or temporary residency;  including but not limited to medical reports, counselor or social worker assessments, employment documents or benefit statements.

       *  Affidavits, certifications and sworn attestations pertaining to statutory criteria for school attendance, from the parent, legal guardian, person keeping an "Affidavit Student", adult student, person(s) with whom a family is living or others, as appropriate.

      *   Documents pertaining to military status and/or assignment.

       *  Any business record or document issued by a governmental identity.

       *  Any other form of documentation relevant to demonstrating entitlement to attend school.

The totality of information and documentation you offer will be considered in evaluating an application and, unless expressly required by law, the student will not be denied enrollment based on your inability to provide certain form(s) of documentation where other acceptable evidence is presented.  

You will not be asked for any information or documents protected from disclosure by law or pertaining to criteria which are not legitimate bases for determining eligibility to attend school.  You may voluntarily disclose any information or document you believe will help establish that the student meets the requirements of law for entitlement to attend school in the district, but we may not directly or indirectly require or request any of the following:

       *  Income tax returns
       *  Documentation or information relating  to citizenship,  immigration status or visa status; unless the student holds or is applying for an F-1 visa 
       *  Documentation or information relating  to compliance with local housing ordinances or conditions of tenancy.
       *  Social Security numbers

Please be aware that any initial determination of the student's eligibility to attend school in the Wyckoff School District is subject to more thorough review and subsequent re-evaluation.  Tuition  may be assessed in the event that initially admitted student is later found ineligible.  If your student is found ineligible, at this time or later, you will be provided the reason(s) for our decision and instructions on how to appeal.
