DMV Change of Address

Law states that you must notify DMV within 10 days of changing your address. There is no charge to change your address, and you may notify DMV by any of the following ways:

  1. Complete your change of address online.
  2. Call any DMV office at 1 (800) 777-0133 and request that a change of address form be mailed to you. It will take 5 days for you to receive it. Complete the information required on the form, then mail it to the address listed at the top of the form.
  3. Download the Change of Address form DMV 14, complete the information, and mail it to the address listed at the top of the form.
  4. Visit any DMV office, complete a change of address form, and give it to a technician. The technician will give you a Change of Address Certificate card (DL 43) to complete and carry with your license.

If you do 2 or 3 above, type or write in ink your new address on a small piece of paper, sign and date it. Carry this piece of paper with your license. Do not tape or staple the change of address information to your driver license.

Single Period Absences

On occasion we have a single period absence for a student and a dialer goes out.  Unfortunately,  you have no way of knowing that it was for a single period and it may alarm you because you knew your student was indeed in school.  The one quick way of checking where and when the student was marked absent is by looking in Power School. The protocol for this type of scenario is that we verify directly with the teacher that marked them absent. Once the teacher looks into it, they then let us know if it was teacher error or if the student may have been late etc. and we can then correct their attendance.  If you check back in Power School in a few days their attendance should be cleared. If not feel free to call us then so we can look into it further.
