• Dear Parent or Guardian of a 5th or 8th grader,


    Leon County Schools Policy 5112 requires verification of current residence of 5th grade and 8th grade students transitioning to middle school or high school. We will need a primary and a secondary proof of address for your student (a list of acceptable documents is provided below). Your student will not receive a schedule at their new school without this proof being provided. Two proofs of address are due to the LCS Office of Admissions by Monday, May 1, 2023.

    Please upload the documents on your parent portal account or email the documents to lcsadmissions@leonschools.net. In the subject line, please put your student’s name and that you are providing proof of address for verification. For example, “John Smith Proof of Address for Verification.” We will contact you by email or phone call (please provide your phone number in the email) if we need something different than what is provided.

    If you are not able to scan the documents, you can send them in with your student, or take them to your current school and they can scan and send them to us for you. If you have an extenuating circumstance or have questions, please reach out to us at lcsadmissions@leonschools.net .

    Please note: if you have applied for School Choice you still must prove your address for promotion by Monday, May 1, 2023.
