The only place that legally must educate him is the school where his parents live. When he turns 18 he can be educated where he lives. However, the school may accept him for the rest of the year if asked. This kind of guardianship for education is not required to be accepted by schools - because it is a burden on taxpayers who should not have to educate a child except where his parents live.
This should not be considered legal advice and is intended for educational purposes only. It does not constitute a contract for legal services between any parties.

No. That notary document won't be considered legal and you should speak with an attorney to draw up temporary custody papers or guardianship papers. A judge will need to sign the order making it effective.
