• Documentation Required for Registration of Students New to the District:

    Proof of Residence

    The following is a list of documentation that may be used to establish a student's residency. The list below provides guidance regarding the sufficiency of documentation that may be submitted by a parent/guardian.

    You must provide at least one (1) document from each of the three (3) areas below.  Upon review of the Superintendent’s designee, further documentation may be required. 

    Type 1 - Proof of Parent or Guardian Identity (Documentation must be valid as of date of submission to District.)

    1. Passport;
    2. State-Issued Driver’s License; or
    3. State-Issued Non-Driver’s Identification

    Type 2 - Proof of Residency and Supporting Documentation

    1. Deed;
    2. Tax Bill for Residence;
      1. Parent/Guardian’s billing address on tax bill must match residence. Otherwise, parent/guardian must provide additional supporting documentation for proof of residency.
    3. Executed Lease or Rental Agreement (Lease must be up-to-date - an expired lease or an unsigned lease is not a valid proof of residence);
      1. Lease or Rental Agreement must include Landlord’s name and contact information and must be signed by all parties (i.e. phone number).
      2. If Agreement does not include such information, parent/guardian must provide Landlord's name and phone number for verification purposes.
    4. HUD Papers; or
    5. Closing Statement for Residence.

    TYPE 3: The District will also require one of the options below as verification of Supplemental Residency Documentation (dated within the past 30 calendar days); at times, more than one may be requested:

    1. Utility Bill listing residential address and billing address;
    2. Car Registration;
    3. Government benefit Document;
    4. Notarized Statement from Landlord; Phone Bill
