Registration Information

The first day of classes for all Duneland students is Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2016.

If your child will be transitioning to a new Duneland School (e.g. moving from elementary to intermediate; intermediate to middle; middle to high school), parents will be required to complete a new residency affirmation statement and provide the required residency affirmation documents listed under Residency Requirements. You are obligated to do this at your child’s school building during the registration dates listed below. This is necessary even if you have a student in another grade that is not transitioning. 

Residency Requirements
Proof of Residency (i.e. legal settlement) is required for all NEW students and any student whose residence within the district has changed since they last enrolled in school. Acceptable documentation of legal settlement must include the student and parent/guardian’s current address on a valid rental/mortgage agreement AND one additional document, such as a current payroll stub, a valid voter’s registration card, copies of current monthly utility bills or a valid government issued ID.

Immunization Requirements 
All Duneland School Corporation students will be required to provide documentation of the immunization requirements.The Indiana State Department of Health Immunization Division annually reviews and updates the immunization required for school entry.  A full list of all school immunization requirements can be found on our Health Services website.

The only immunization records that are now accepted by schools are written statements from health care providers and state immunization registry documentation.
