If these documents are not available or cannot be readily verified, the registration will be referred to the Residency Verification Committee which may conduct an investigation, including but not limited to an unannounced home visit, to confirm residency for assignment to the proper attendance zone school.

Students without a verified residency within the school’s attendance zone will be temporarily enrolled pending a residency determination by the Residency Verification Committee. In that case, further notice will be provided.
