Verification and Proof of Residency
RETURNING STUDENTS: Returning student residency for the upcoming school year will be verified electronically, and investigators from National Investigations, Inc. will follow-up with those that cannot be initially verified. Parents and guardians of returning students will receive notice in July with the results of the residency verification if necessary and indicate next steps if any. Most families will not receive a letter.
ALL OTHER STUDENTS: Anyone seeking to enroll a student must complete the Proof of Residency Form and provide the required supporting documentation. One document from each of the following categories is required to complete the registration process. Please submit only copies of supporting documents, not originals. Documents will not be returned.

One of the above documents from the District resident must also be provided.
