Changes made to Mission CISD registration process

MCISDlogoThis year, registration days for most Mission Consolidated Independent School District schools will only be for students who are new to the school district or who did not complete their registration packets/information before the end of the 2012-2013 school year. Proof of residency within the district is a part of completing the registration packets.           

Registration will be held for all Mission CISD schools (except Mission Collegiate High School) on Aug. 8 and 9 from 8:30-11 a.m. and 1-3:30 p.m. Elementary school registration will be held at their respective campuses.

Junior high school registrations will be held at their feeder high schools. Mission Jr. High School and R. Cantu Jr. High School student registration will be held at Veterans Memorial High School. Alton Memorial Jr. High School and K. White Jr. High School registration will be held at Mission High School.

These registration events should only be for students who are new to Mission CISD or for students who did not complete their registration packets prior to the registration days. A letter will be mailed to the students of the junior high schools and high schools mentioned above, with more specifics regarding procedures for the first day of school.

Mission Collegiate High School will hold registration activities on Aug. 6 for all sophomores, and on Aug. 7 for all incoming freshmen. Registration will be in the Mission High School Library from 8-11 a.m. for last names beginning with A-L, and 1-4 p.m. for last names beginning with M-Z.

At registration, a parent, legal guardian, or family member over the age of 21 must accompany students for the registration through eighth grade.

Proper dress and appearance will be required of all secondary students for registration.

Items requested for the registration of all students include: immunization records, verification of Social Security number and proof of residence within the district.

In addition to the items listed above, a birth certificate will be required to register for kindergarten if the student is new to the district. A birth certificate will also be required to register pre-kinder students. Pre-k will be offered at each elementary school as a half-day program for all who meet the age, residency and immunization requirements.

A parent or legal guardian must accompany students new to Mission CISD. Items requested for registration of new students (beyond those listed above) are up-to-date transcript, test scores, and records from the previous school. Junior high schools and high schools will charge $5 for I. D. cards.
