Social Security Card – In the state of Texas students are tracked by the state identification number. TEA prefers that students are coded using their Federal Social Security Number and we are required to ask for this information. We can only assign the social security number as the student’s state id when we have acceptable proof of that number. If acceptable proof is not provided an alternative state id number may be used; however, this id is not accepted by institutions of higher education. Acceptable proof includes:
  • Copy of the Social Security Card
  • Records from the previous school
  • Income Tax Forms
 
Proof of Identification for Student (per the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure 63.019)
 
  • A certified copy of the child’s birth certificate, or another document suitable as proof of the child’s identity as defined by the Commissioner of Education in the Student Attendance Accounting Handbook.
  • The name of the previous school attended by the student
