Required forms and information

The online registration form must be completed by the student’s parent or legal guardian in order to enroll your student at Southeast Polk. Proof of legal guardianship needs to be provided in order to enroll the student. Please bring the following information with you to your appointment.

Proof of Age

Proof of age is required for all new students to the Southeast Polk Community School District. In Iowa, a child must be five years old on or before September 15 of the year he or she starts school in order to enroll in kindergarten. Proof of age is requested at Kindergarten Roundup and required prior to the start of school. For students in grades one through 12, proof is also required before your child can start attending school.
Several options are acceptable:

  • A hospital birth certificate
  • A passport
  • Adoption papers
  • A certificate obtained from the county the child was born.
  • For Polk County: Polk County Recorder’s Office, 111 Court Ave., Room 245, Des Moines, IA 50309-2251; Phone: 286-3781.
  • A state certificate can be obtained from: Iowa Vital Records Bureau, Lucas State Office Building 321 E. 12th, Des Moines, IA  50319; Phone: 281-4944

Custody Verification

If custody is of other means than divorce, the Guardianship and Custodial papers must have an assignment of tuition. This is handled through the courts, so please contact your attorney for assistance.

Proof of Residency

If you are new to our district, please be prepared to provide proof of residency showing your name and district address in any of the following forms. Please provide the appropriate documentation to the Registrar prior to your student’s first day of school at Southeast Polk. Failure to do so may delay your student’s enrollment at Southeast Polk.

If you own property in the Southeast Polk school district, proof of residency for homeowners can be verified by the Polk County Assessor’s page. If homeownership is too current to be reflected on the Polk County Assessor’s page, you may be asked to provide one or more of the following:

    • Homeowner’s purchase agreement
    • Statement from your mortgage company
    • Current utility bill mailed to you at your residence
