Residency requirements have been modified this year, and require scheduling an appointment for an in-person visit to your school.

Only families who are new to the district, new preschool students, or families who have students entering Kindergarten or 6th Grade must demonstrate that they live within District boundaries (even if you have proven residency in prior years).  Returning students not in one of those categories do not need to prove residency this year.
