Important Information Regarding SSN and Birth Certificate
Disclosure of your child’s social security number (SSN) is voluntary. If you elect not to provide a SSN, a temporary identification number will be generated and utilized instead. Your child’s SSN is being requested for use in conjunction with enrollment in school as provided in Ala. Admin. Code §290-3-1.02(2)(b)(2). It will be used as a means of identification in the statewide student management system.
First-time enrollees are requested to provide a birth certificate and a social security number at the time of registration. However, the presentation of a birth certificate and a social security number is voluntary only. Social Security numbers and birth certificates are used by the district for the limited purpose of properly identifying students for record-keeping and transcripts and are kept confidential. The lack of or refusal to provide a birth certificate and/or a social security number will have no impact on the district’s enrollment decision. Students who enroll without a social security number will be assigned an alternate identification number.
