District Residency Requirements

New students to the district must provide two acceptable proofs of residence in order to register.
 
Current students are required to re-register each spring and submit current residency documentation. 
 
For both of these verification requirements, the following documents are accepted as proof of residence: 
 
  • Lease agreement
      • Must be signed by tenant & landlord and list all residents
      • Must include dates of the agreement
      • If the lease is an annual lease that has expired and been converted to a month-to-month lease, it must be accompanied by a at least one current utility bill.
  • Rent receipts
      • Receipts must include the property address, name of one or more parents, and the date of payment.
  • Property tax bill or receipt
      • Must include home address, parent address, and date of payment
      • Must be accompanied by at least one current utility bill
  • Grant deed

      • Bill must be dated within 60 days of the date provided to the District.
  • Current cable bill or contract
      • Bill must be dated within 60 days of the date provided to the District.
  • Correspondence from a Government Agency
      • Parent driver’s licenses do not meet this requirement
      • End-of-year tax forms from an employer or financial institution do not meet this requirement.
  • Escrow documents
      • Accepted starting 14 days before the first day of school, for summer registration
      • Accepted up to 6 weeks before moving in, for mid-year registration
      • Additional proof will be required upon move-in
 
If any District employee reasonably believes the parent/guardian of a student has provided false or unreliable evidence of residency, the District shall make reasonable efforts to determine if the student meets residency requirements. Reasonable efforts include, but are not limited, to home visits and investigation by a private detective. District employees may also ask for current proof of residence at any time. Falsification of any information or documents, either written or verbal will result in revocation of enrollment.
