highschool transcripts (or the lack there of) & CPS (sorta)

I have a fifteen year old boy that ran away from an abusive man with his mother, and are now living with friends in another state. They left in the middle of the night, with just what they were wearing and nothing else.

The mother wants her son to enroll in the school there. What would they do, since it's unplanned and wouldn't have the boy's transcripts. Do you really need those or is it a movie thing? Could they be faxed or mailed? Would that hold up the boy starting school?

Also, both would still be bruised while meeting with the school, would a administrator accept the mother's explanation, the truth, that they were in trouble but left, or would child protective services be called anyway? At this point both the mother and the son don't know if the man is dead, so they'd be more than a little afraid of an investigation...

I realize the second is more opinion/dependant on the administrator, I'd just like a few ideas on what may happen.
