By federal law and relevant court orders, as well as Alabama Department of Education directives, these documents are not required in order to enroll. The collection of this information is for creation of a unique identifier for students. This is important due to electronic transfer of information of students from one school to another, both within our system and state. Failure to produce these documents does not prevent a student from being enrolled in any Lawrence County School. If a student does not have or cannot produce a Social Security number, a unique identifying number, based on formula unique to the school system, will be used to create the number. NO intent is made or implied to require information regarding any student’s immigration and/or citizenship status.
