Step 3: Verify age, identity, residency, and immunization compliance

Parents registering their children for the first time in a Talbot County public school must provide proof of age, identity, county residency, and immunizations.

Students who have previously attended school should bring their latest report card, if available. Students receiving special education services should bring a copy of the current Individualized Education Program (IEP).
