INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Registration of 18-Year-Old Males with Selective Service

 
  As you know, federal law requires that all 18-year-old males
  register with Selective Service.  Individuals who fail to
  register with Selective Service lose their rights to HOPE
  Scholarships, federal grants, and federal jobs.

  According to Selective Service officials, 52 percent of
  Virginia high schools have appointed registrars to help with
  the process for registration.  I sincerely hope that each high
  school principal will appoint a person in his or her school to
  provide the assistance needed for Selective Service
  registration.

  Materials needed for registration will be provided by
  Selective Service officials along with a Selective Service
  Form 402 to be completed by the person appointed as the
  registrar.

  Additional information may be obtained from Brig. Gen. Manuel
  R. Flores, Virginia state director of Selective Service, at
  (804) 748-6912, or by writing to the Region II Selective
  Service Office, 803 Walker Street, Marietta, Georgia, 30060-2731,
  or by calling (770) 590-6602.
