How Do I Verify Residency?

- Fill out “Verification of Residency” form (one per child) and include your child’s name and the grade your child will be going into
- Print and sign & date the form (we cannot accept electronic signatures)
- Scan or take a picture of document you are using to verify residency (see list above)
- Email completed and signed “Verification of Residency” form along with “documentation of residency” (listed above) to email@example.com

What about Second Family Affidavits?
If a student and his/her family reside with another family and they are unable to provide a document to verify their own residency, the attached “Second Family Affidavit” form needs to be submitted, along with the “Verification of Residency” form and supporting verification document. The form must be signed by representatives of the homeowner and parent/legal guardian. Photo ID of the homeowner must also be provided. Submit all forms using one of the methods above.
