Compulsory Attendance

The Office of Compulsory School Attendance Enforcement is responsible for ensuring that all Mississippi students are afforded the opportunity to attend school and to enforce the Mississippi Compulsory School Attendance Law §37-13-91 of the Mississippi Code 1972 Annotated. The law governs compulsory school attendance. It requires a parent, legal guardian or custodian who has legal control or charge of a child age six (6) to seventeen (17) to enroll him or her in an education program (i.e. public, private or home school). Student enrollment must occur except under the limited circumstances specified in subsection three (3) of §37-13-91 which includes, but are not limited to, sending the child to a state approved, nonpublic, or educating the child at home in an organized educational program. July 1, 2003, the law was amended to include the following: a child, five (5) years of age, who enrolls in public kindergarten, will have to abide by the same guidelines as outlined in the §37-13-91.

Affidavit Registration

    * Click here for affidavit forms*  (Affidavits are not allowed during Kindergarten pre-registration in April)

 *An affidavit of residency is only used if the parent or guardian of the student DOES NOT reside in a place of abode that is owned or leased by that parent or guardian.  Example:  A parent and her 2 children live with the parent's mother and does not own the property or pay rent to stay with her mother.

New requirements for filing an affidavit have been introduced beginning with the 2016-2017 school year.  
Both parties (the home owner and the legal parent/guardian)will have to sign the affidavit in the presence of a school notary and must provide photo id when signing the form.

Affidavits of residency are subject to review every 60 to 90 days and home visits by the district may be made to verify that the parent and students actually reside at that location.



If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact the school that your child will be enrolled.  Click here for contact information.
