SPECIAL AFFIDAVIT VERIFICATION OF RESIDENCY
The Madison County School District now requires that the parent/legal guardian of a student residing in a home not owned or rented in the name of the parent/legal guardian (ENROLLMENT BY SPECIAL AFFIDAVIT) must provide proof of residency at the District Central Office before the student may be enrolled. Both the parent/ legal guardian of the student and the owner/leaseholder of the property must meet with District personnel at the District Central Office beginning this year and every year forward.
The vision of Velma Jackson High School, with the collective support of parents/guardians, teachers, staff and community, is to provide a safe environment with the best educational experience possible. We strive to meet, maintain & exceed successful status while preparing students with the academic & social skills necessary to attain college and career readiness.
