Attention 5th Grade Parents

posted Jul 9, 2015, 8:39 AM by Michael Sharif   [ updated Jul 9, 2015, 8:43 AM ]
State law requires that public schools verify student residence. In addition, the BUSD Governing Board requires that all 5th grade students and all 8th grade students prove residency again – even if they have always lived in Benicia. This requirement must be completed prior to August registration at Benicia Middle School. Your student will not be able to participate in registration if this task is not completed.

The process is simple and easy! You must bring (in person) to your child’s school one of the following documents from each category listed below.

Category 1: Driver’s license or state ID with current address or current passport or current military ID

Category 2: grant deed/mortgage coupon or current property tax bill or original rental/lease agreement w/parent name and names of children (Must include manager or owner name and phone#)

Category 3: State/Federal tax return w/current address imprinted or payroll stub w/current name and address imprinted or other legal mail w/current address i.e. utility or bank statement (must be current month)

  1. If your address in our BUSD PowerSchool student information system matches the documentation, we will simply verify your residency and give you a verification receipt.
  2. If your address in our PowerSchool student information system does not match, we will need to make copies of your documents for our files. Additional information may be needed. A verification receipt will not be given unless ALL needed documentation is provided at one time.

Don’t delay. This task must be completed prior to August registration at BMS!
