Registration Procedures

Enrollment Procedures for New Studentsa human-like fugure holding a red pencil simulating filling in a form.
Current proof of immunization, birth certificate, evidence of current grade level (report card or withdrawal form from previous school), and proof of residence in the Cordova Middle School attendance area must be provided when enrolling a new student. 

A student will be assigned to a classroom by the principal or the principal's designee based upon the number of students currently in the classroom, a student's needs, and/or other factors that are deemed appropriate in making the best possible placement. All classroom placements are considered temporary and can be adjusted by the principal at any time depending on the needs of the school.

Out of Variance Procedures
While moving is something unavoidable parents should try to keep their child enrolled at the same school whenever possible. Students who move out of the Cordova Middle School attendance area may apply for a variance by coming to the office and completing an out of area variance request form. If approved, the child(ren) will be allowed to continue at Cordova Middle School as a student. The Alhambra School District will accommodate as many attendance variance requests as possible from both inside and outside the District attendance area. Please contact the principal if you wish to request an attendance variance for your child. The principal of the school will be happy to discuss the request with you. Granting of variances is a site-based decision by the school principal. The decision to grant a variance is based on enrollment for the grade level of each school. 

If a variance request is granted, parents and students agree to the following:

  • Maintain good attendance (95% or higher)
  • Maintain passing grades
  • Maintain good behavior (no out of school suspensions or excessive detentions or referrals)
  • Parents will provide transportation and the student will not ride Alhambra District buses
  • Students will not arrive at school earlier than 7:45 a.m.
  • Parents will pick students up no later than 3:40 p.m. for regular dismissal, or 4:40 p.m., if the student stays for an after-school activity.


Failure to comply with these requirements may result in the immediate revocation of the variance.

Withdrawal Procedures 
Please notify the office at least two days in advance of your child's withdrawal. Prior to being withdrawn, all school materials and books must be turned in (including textbooks and library materials). In addition, all fines must be paid. Parents must sign a copy of the withdrawal form. This form is a legal document and will be needed to register your child at his/her new school.
