Required Documentation for Student Registration

Thank you for choosing Kingsport City Schools! Registration is open to all students residing in the City of Kingsport and to those students who have been granted tuition status. To register in Kingsport City Schools, the following items must be supplied by the registrant:
For children born in Tennessee, the parent may request a copy of the certificate of birth at or by visiting the Sullivan County Health Department in Blountville, Tenn. There is a minimal fee for this service. Applicants will need to supply a picture identification, mother’s legal name, county of birth and hospital of birth.

Children born outside the state of Tennessee will need to request the birth certificate from their state of birth. Contact information can be supplied through the Sullivan County Health Department in Blountville, Tenn.

A student must be enrolled and registered using the exact name that appears on the certificate of birth or certificate of adoption. Name changes due to the marriage of the student or other court proceedings will be entered in the student’s record upon receipt of an official documentation through the court agency (TCA 49-6-5106).
Only provide documentation if applicable.
Proof of up-to-date Tennessee Immunization serves as verification that all immunizations are up to date and the child is eligible for school enrollment. This certificate is issued by the Sullivan County Health Department or by your child's physician. No child can attend school in the State of Tennessee without this documentation (TCA 49-6-5003). All new students to Kingsport City Schools must have a physical (recommended).
Proof of any out-of-state immunizations will need to be transferred to the Tennessee Immunization Certificate by a medical provider prior to starting school.  The transfer of this information to the Tennessee Immunization Certificate can be completed by the Tennessee Department of Health or by a Tennessee provider.  A copy of the physical examination (completed within the last 366 days) can be documented on or stapled to the Tennessee Immunization Certificate.
Proof of Residency should be completed by each new registrant. Verification of the residence may be made with one of the following current documents that must include the parent’s name and address of the residence.
  • Mortgage statement
  • Formal rental lease
  • Property tax receipt
  • Public utility billing statement (water or electricity)
Both the completed form and document for verification should be included with the registration. The school has the authority to ask for the Proof of Residency form to be signed and acknowledged before a notary public.
This is recommended for all new students enrolling in Kingsport City Schools.
Exception: Students in foster care, homeless students, immigrant students, migrant students, and English Language students will be admitted while the school works with family to obtain necessary documents.
The student registration form must be completed by the student's parent or legal guardian only. The student will not be enrolled until the documents above are submitted to the school.
