Residency Requirements

Establishing Residency
A student must establish residence within the district's boundaries in order to attend without a tuition charge, except as otherwise provided in state law. For the purposes of this policy, a resident student is defined as follows:

  • A child whose parents live within the district
  • A child legally adopted by a resident
  • A child living in the district who has lost both parents by death
  • A child whose parents are porced and the parent having custody of the child is a resident
  • A child whose parents are not financially able to contribute to his or her support but who have a temporary or permanent home in the district
    • A notarized affidavit of support will be required
  • A child whose custody has been awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction to a resident adult

Please note that children of a non-resident living with relatives in the district who do not support them are not entitled to free tuition. A student whose family moves out of the district during the school year will be permitted to attend school for the remainder of the year without payment of tuition.
