In addition to the registration forms, certain documentation is required to enroll in Michigan public schools.

Immunization/Vaccine/Shot Records. The State of Michigan requires students enrolled in child care & schools to provide proof of vaccination. If your child needs vaccines to meet these requirements, visit your family physician, clinic, or contact your county’s health department. Families who seek exemption from these requirements may follow these instructions for requesting a Non-medical Waiver Form in place of immunization records to continue enrollment.
Hearing & Vision Screening. The State of Michigan requires Kindergarten students to complete Hearing and Vision screening prior to Kindergarten entry. These screenings are free to parents and can be scheduled through your local health department. Once attending public school in Michigan, students will continue to be screened up through 9th grade.
