Easier Residency Verification Process
Reported by firstname.lastname@example.org on 3/22/17
District 204 is moving to a more efficient residency verification process that will be easier for parents. Currently, prior to registration, all parents who have students entering grades kindergarten, 3, 6, 7, 9, and 11 are required to bring three documents to school to demonstrate proof of residency.
Beginning this year, the district is contracting with a third party vendor to automatically verify student address information. We anticipate the overwhelming majority of our families will be electronically verified. If your residency is electronically verified, you will receive a letter of confirmation and there will be no need to submit any additional paperwork to certify that you live within the district’s boundaries.
A letter will also be sent to families whose residency we are unable to verify electronically. The letter will provide details on additional information you will need to provide by April 21, 2017 in order to register your child for the upcoming school year.
Verifying residency is an effort to protect taxpayers and district resources by identifying non-residents attending District 204 schools. Illinois law mandates that parents demonstrate residency prior to enrollment in school and allows for periodic verification to validate compliance with the law.
Please contact your school principal with any questions or concerns.
