- Complete and return an Ithaca City School District Health and Developmental History form for each child.
- Provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate.
- If your child was previously enrolled at another school, please forward a Request Release of School Records 2017-2018 and Student Evaluation form to that school so that academic records can be transferred to EAC.
In addition, if your (elementary or middle school age) child needs school bus transportation to EAC, you will need to apply to your home district in writing. District school bus transportation request forms are available below.
School Bus Transportation Requests due April 1st
All requests for school bus transportation for the coming school year are due to your school district’s Transportation Department by April 1, 2017. Your child must be 5 or older to ride the bus and you must submit a new request for transportation each year. If the district receives the request after April 1st, they reserve the right to deny transportation.
