Custody

  • Per the Alabama Administrative Code, each student enrolled within TCS must provide valid custody information.  Furthermore, to establish custody for the purposes of school enrollment, a parent must provide a final document signed by a judge and filed, declaring primary physical custody of the child they wish to enroll.

    Documents that do NOT suffice for primary physical custody are:

    • A Delegation of Parental Authority, Ala. Code §26-2A-7, does not establish residence for the purpose of school enrollment.
    • The mere filing of a Dependent Complaint, Custody Affidavit and Petition, Ala. Code §26-2A-75, in Jefferson County Family Court does not establish residence for the purpose of school enrollment
    • Power of Attorney
    • Anything petitioned, filed or written without a final stamp and judges signature is not allowed
