Registering for School _ Many schools have a birth certificate among the requirements for registration. A birth certificate serves as a proof of identity and age. This assures that the student is actually who he or she says she is and is in the correct class based on age.
For a child born in a foreign country and adopted by a U.S. citizen, a birth certificate may be available from the state where the adoption was registered (generally the state where the parent(s) resided during the adoption). If the adoption was not registered in the U.S., you may need to speak with someone at the foreign embassy for the country where you were born in order to get a copy of your birth record. In these cases, a certificate of naturalization may be necessary to prove U.S. citizenship.
