SCHOOLS

To enroll your children in school, you must have their proof of immunization.
Children entering Kindergarten through seventh grade must:

  • Submit the child’s birth certificate
  • Have had a complete physical examination within the past year
  • Be age five on or before 30 September of the enrollment year

It is recommended that you take action on these requirements well before enrolling your child. If your child is in Special Education or has developmental disabilities, have copies of your child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) and any partial or completed evaluative testing performed by previous schools. Some Hampton Roads area schools require that children rent or purchase their textbooks. The rental amount varies by

school district or grade and must be paid upon enrollment. The rental fees usually range between $10 and $35 per year, per student. For information on the public schools in Virginia, you can contact the Virginia Department of Education at the following website: DOE Website
