The online registration form must be completed by the student’s parent or legal guardian in order to enroll your student at Colfax-Mingo.  Proof of legal guardianship needs to be provided in order to enroll the student.

Proof of Age

Proof of age is required for all new students to the Colfax-Mingo Community School District.  In Iowa, a child must be five years old on or before September 15 of the year he or she starts school in order to enroll in kindergarten.  Proof of age is requested at Kindergarten Roundup and required prior to the start of school.  For students in grades 1 through 12, proof is also required before your child can start attending school.

Several options are acceptable:

  • A passport
  • Adoption papers
  • A certificate obtained from the county the child was born
  • For Jasper County: Jasper County Recorder’s Office, 101 1st St. N., #102, Newton, IA 50208; Phone: (641) 792-5442
  • A state certificate can be obtained from: Iowa Vital Records Bureau, Lucas State Office Building, 321 E. 12th St., Des Moines, IA 50319; Phone (515) 281-4944
Custody Verification

If custody is of other means than divorce, the Guardianship and Custodial papers must have an assignment of tuition.  This is handled through the courts, so please contact your attorney for assistance.

Proof of Residency

If you are new to our district, please be prepared to provide proof of residency showing your name and district address in any of the following forms. Please provide the appropriate documentation to the Registrar prior to your student’s first day of school at Colfax-Mingo. Failure to do so may delay your student’s enrollment at Colfax-Mingo. A post office box is NOT an acceptable address for the purpose of determining residency.  The only district-approved documents that are accepted for proof of residency include:

  • Official Homeowner’s Purchase Agreement
  • Current Official Lease Agreement (signed by you and your landlord with the company’s logo/letterhead)
  • Current water or electric bill mailed to you at your residence

NOTE: Falsification of any information or document required for residency verification or the use of the address of another person without actually residing there may result in:

  • Revocation of student enrollment
  • Being held liable to reimburse the district for expenses incurred to educate this student
  • Civil action resulting from fraud, negligent misrepresentation, and negligence
