At the time of registration, and on an annual basis thereafter, the parent, guardian, or other person
having lawful control of the student under order of a court must
present proof of residency in the District as required by law.
Acceptable documentation that may be used to verify residency
These documents must be in the name of the parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control of the student.
For a student living separate and apart from his or her parent,
guardian, or other person having lawful control under order of a
court, the adult District resident with whom the student resides
must provide proof of residency in the same manner as a parent.
For a nonresident student whose resident grandparent provides a
substantial amount of before/after-school care, the grandparent must provide proof of residency in the same manner as a parent.
The District will investigate stated
residency as necessary.
In accordance with law, the District may make reasonable inquiries
to determine whether the student is a resident of the District, including when a document submitted for purposes of proving residency is not in the name of the adult who is enrolling the student.
Based on an individual’s circumstance, the District may grant exceptions to the requirement to produce a document listed above.
When required by law, the District will waive the requirement to
prove residency in the District boundaries. [See Board Policy FD(LEGAL) and FD(LOCAL)]
In the event a parent, guardian, or other person having lawful control of the student is unable to provide a proof of residency in their own name, they may be able to establish residency by completing an affidavit.
