According to A.R.S. §15-828 (B), the school may also accept "other reliable proof of the child's identity and age, including the child's baptismal certificate, an application for a social security number or original school registration records AND an affidavit explaining the inability to provide a copy of the birth certificate." Alternatively, a letter from the authorized representative of an agency having custody of the pupil pursuant to title 8, chapter 2 certifying that the pupil has been placed in the custody of the agency as prescribed by law may be used in place of the birth certificate.
By state law (A.R.S. §15-873) a child will not be allowed to attend school until either proof of immunization or a completed exemption form is submitted to the school. Here is a list of the current Arizona School Immunization Requirements
If you choose not to vaccinate your child(ren), please print and sign the form that is most appropriate to your situation. On occasion, we may require new Immunization Exemption Forms to be filled out, depending on policy/form changes made by the Arizona Department of Health.

Proof of Residency
A.R.S. §15-802 (B) requires school districts and charter schools to obtain and maintain verifiable documentation of Arizona residency upon enrollment in an Arizona school. This document must refer to the physical residence where the student lives and should match the address listed on the enrollment form. Proof of Residency is NOT related to the immigration or citizen status of a student or family, and is not required for students who qualify as McKinney Vento. Please contact the front office with any difficulties or concerns in providing a proof of residency document.
Required If Applicable: Special Education Records, Guardianship or Custody Paperwork, Legal Documents, Affidavits of Shared Residency (click to expand)
Special Education Records
Sequoia Choice is able to enroll most special education students, but certain accommodations are not possible in a distance learning environment. Special Education records from the student's previous school (including IEPs, METs, and 504 Plans) should be provided to the Sequoia Choice SPED department before the enrollment is processed. Our SPED department will coordinate with you to determine which of our programs is the best fit for your student's needs.
Guardianship or Custody Paperwork
If the student does not reside with their biological or adopted parents, please provide the appropriate documentation to clarify the child's legal guardianship. In a situation where a student is living with a family member or friend who does not have legal guardianship for them, the parent must provide a notarized letter stating that this individual has educational rights for the student.
Certain legal documents may be required based on the student's unique circumstance. Examples may include documentation for a legal name change, Notice to Provider, or custody paperwork.
Affidavit of Shared Residency
Students/Parents/Guardians who are unable to provide a Proof of Residency document in their own name may submit an Affidavit of Shared Residency in conjunction with a proof of residency document provided by the owner of the Arizona residence where the student lives. The form can be found on the last page of this link.
To Expedite Student Courses: Unofficial High School Transcript (click to expand)
Unofficial High School Transcript
If possible, please submit an unofficial copy of the student's high school transcript. While we will request official records from the previous school, it may take several days or even several requests before your transcript arrives. Submitting an unofficial transcript gives the academic coach a better picture of which classes you'll need to take and will help you get started faster.
Optional: Adult Student Release of Information Form (click to expand)
Adult Student Release of Information Form
At the age of eighteen, a student becomes the responsible party for their school records and communication regarding their education. Many students have found that it is easier to achieve success with a support system of family or close family friend. If you have a parent, guardian, other person that you would like included in communications regarding your schooling, please submit a notarized copy of this form to allow Sequoia Choice to communicate with this individual.
