Freshman Residency Requirement

Attention parents and guardians of incoming freshman students, District 214 requires that you satisfy residency in the school boundaries before you can register your student.

You will be able to verify residency, apply for a fee waiver (if applicable), and register for the school year. Please see the proof of residency form for more information about the documents you will need to verify residency, and bring copies of those documents, if you are able. An original birth certificate must also be presented. If an original birth certificate is not produced, a Passport, Visa or other governmental documentation of the child's identify can be provided. However, an Affidavit explaining the inability to produce a copy of the birth certificate must accompany the Passport, Visa or other governmental documentation of the child's identity. Should you not have an original birth certificate, this must be submitted to the school within 30 days from the first day of school.
