RESIDENCY VERIFICATION

The first step to enrolling a student at YLHS is to provide RESIDENCY VERIFICATION to the Counseling Office. 
 
If you are living with another family in one house/apartment please call for information.
 
Attached you will find two (2) PYLUSD district forms for you to complete and bring with you along with the required three (3) documents from the Residency Verification Form.  Once we have received these documents we will confirm residency or require additional forms to verify residency.  If all residency documents have been approved an enrollment packet will be provided to you and an appointment will be made for enrollment with a counselor.
 
Required forms: (see attached below)
 
Residency Verification Form -  completed with one (1) verification of identity and one or two residency verification's.

STEP 2
 
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY - Your child will not be permitted to enroll unless we have ALL the required documents listed below.  We only allow biological parents or Caregiver Guardians approved by the district to enroll the student.  
 
 PLEASE BE SURE TO CHECK YOUR STUDENT OUT OF THE SCHOOL THEY LAST ATTENDED OR WAS SCHEDULED TO ATTEND THIS YEAR AND OBTAIN AN UNOFFICIAL RELEASE PACKET.  WE CAN NOT ENROLL WITH OUT THIS PACKET.
 
The following documents are required to enroll your student:

Caregiver Form:
This form is required if the student is not living with a biological parent.  This form is obtained at our District's Student Services Department. 
 
Unofficial Transcript: 
It is the responsibility of the parent to obtain this information from the previous school at the time of withdrawal.  Please do not let the school tell you that YLHS needs to request a transcript.  We will request OFFICIAL transcripts after your student is enrolled.  It is your right as a parent to have a copy. 
 
Foreign Transcripts: All foreign transcripts, immunizations and birth certificate must be translated into English by American Education Research Corporation (AERC) 626 339-4404 www.aerc-eval.com  We will not accept translations from any other company.  Please plan ahead as this process takes time. We will also need to see the original official stamped foreign transcript for verification. Any missing grade level transcripts will not result in the student starting at a lower grade level.  Students are placed by their birth date in the correct grade level according to the PYLUSD placement chart.
 
Withdrawal Grades:
Once the school year has started it is the responsibility of the parent to obtain this information from the previous school at the time of withdrawal. A student can't  be enrolled in two different schools at the same time.  It is mandatory that we have withdrawal grades at the time of enrollment.
