Birth Certificate *
The Michigan Missing Children’s Act (MCL 380.1135) requires that you provide a certified copy of the child’s birth certificate when you are enrolling in school or other reliable proof, as determined by the school district, of the student’s identity and age, and an affidavit explaining the inability to produce a copy of the birth certificate. If you do not meet this requirement within 30 days, the school must notify the local law enforcement agency.
Proof of residency **
For verification of an address as being in the Northview school district contact the township in which the address is located (Ada, Grand Rapids, or Plainfield) or contact the Administration Building (616-363-6861). Placement in an elementary building will be made based on class size and availability, not always on attendance area.
Immunization Requirements ***
Students must be current with all immunizations required by law or have an authorized waiver from State immunization requirements. If a student does not have the necessary shots or waivers, the principal may remove the student and/or require compliance with a set deadline. This is for the safety of all students and in accordance with State law. Visit the Kent County Health Department at Access Kent (accesskent.com), for immunization schedules. Contact Healthy Kids (1-888-988-6300) for details on free health care coverage, including immunizations.
