bannedpianoman tells us more.
Most of you are saying this sounds fishy, and I tried to write this part in the FML, but I didn't have room with the 300 character limit... Since I was a senior for only 9 weeks (half of a semester) this year, they refused give me a new school ID. I tried using my ID from Junior year, since I figured 2009-2010 would work, but they said that that ID was invalid starting the first day of this year. They said that my only other option would be a driver's license. Same situation, more details...

.....You couldn't take your diploma that you got at graduation and photocopy it?
In Texas, if you move there from another state, you don't have to re-take the driving test to get your license as long as your out-of-state license hasn't expired. But to do so, you need stuff like proof of ID, SSN, your old license, proof of enrollment in school or a GED program, and some other things. But this FML sounds fishy if OP doesn't have a license, and yet needs his proof of school enrollment.
Well if proof of enrollment is needed, OP is under 18. And you don't need a license. Show them your old student ID or previous license. They told you wrong because I just had to access my transcripts and diploma like two weeks ago for my insurance company. All they need is a photo ID and you should be able to tell them your social security number. But you DO NOT have to have a driver's license. That has nothing to do with it. And before anyone gives me shit, I live in Texas so I know the rules for our school systems.
You don't get a diploma at graduation. You get a piece of paper that says you participated in the graduation ceremony, and it LOOKS like a diploma for pictures. You pick up the real thing a few weeks after school, when all your final grades have been officially submitted and the paperwork is complete.
I didn't think you needed proof of enrollment for a driver's license... I can't see where OP is from though. :/
You can always get an I.D. from the DMV...they should accept that.
I don't know people are giving it thumbs down, it's perfectly logical. Not every graduating highschooler has a driver license (I didn't) and not every person taking a driving test goes to school currently (again, I didn't)... though I don't know if Texas has some weird laws..
He is saying though that you should always be able to get a state I.D regardless of school enrollment and that the school should accept that I.D. in place of a driver's license. Then they could take the diploma that they retrieved with the state I.D. to go get the license they originally wanted. It was a perfectly logical comment.
have a parent obtain your diploma. problem solved. you're welcome :)
A parent can only obtain it if a student is still under 18. And even if they were under 18. They should still have a student ID and a student ID number...which they can obtain if they go to ANY high school on the same board of education as the one they attended. This FML sounds fake.
