    REQUIREMENT FOR ALL NEW STUDENTS

    All NEW Students enrolling in ALL grades are required to present Proof of Residency to complete the HISD Student Registration process. 

    What is Proof of Residency?  That’s documentation that reflects your physical residence such a current utility bill showing service location, deed of trust, property tax statement, or an unexpired lease agreement showing physical address of residence.  If you don't have any of the above due to living with family or friends, the district will consider accepting a notarized Verification of Address Affidavit.  

    Again, please have all required documents with you when you begin the registration process, as you will have the opportunity to upload them before you submit your completed registration form.  If you experience difficulty with the upload process, please contact by email or phone for support.
