Do you need a BC for Head start?

I'm going in monday, do you think SSN card would be ok ? My son's birth certificate has been lost and we moved out of state so i have to print and mail the request forms in.

  • I don't remember needing those, but they do require immunization records, list of any allergies, emergency contacts, if child requires medicines to be given by school nurse...etc

  • You will need the BC, not so much the SSC. schools and programs aren't authorixed to to know a childs SSN... Because every child has the right to an education, there are a lot of immigrant children in our schools.
