Online Verification and Residency

What is Online Verification and Residency?

Through the process of online verification and residency, parents of returning students will verify their students╩╝ demographic, health, emergency contact and residency information for the 2017-2018 school year. 

WHo is eligible?

All families with returning students will be required to complete online verification, including parents of kindergartners who enrolled during kindergarten roundup. Students who are new to the district in 2017-2018 will be still required to register in person at their school building.

Save Time

Save yourself the time of filling out paperwork by hand. All of your student's information goes in one place, and completing online verification early lets you jump the line at registration and back-to-school nights!

Accurate Information

You will be able to see the information the district already has for your
household and make any necessary changes yourself. This means less room for
errors and more efficient updating of information.

Imagine the amount of paper it takes to verify and register more than 10,000
students. With online verification, you'll be helping make the district and the
whole community more green.

When does it start?

On June 5, the online verification and residency link will appear in the Parent Portal. Parents can complete the process at their convenience throughout the summer. Parents who do not complete online verification over the summer will be required to do so on registration or back-to-school night.

What Information Do I Need?

You will need to be prepared to verify or provide the following:
  • Household information -- address and phone numbers
  • Parent information -- work and cell phone numbers, email addresses
  • Student information -- demographic and health/medication information
  • Emergency Contact -- phone numbers
  • If your student is entering 8th or 12th grade, current immunization information
  • Proof of residency information:
    • A current, signed rental agreement, mortgage statement, or paid real estate property tax receipt
    • A current utility bill (gas, water, electric) upon which the parent or guardian’s address is printed and dated within the last 60 days. Final or disconnect notices will not be accepted

Proof of residency documents can be uploaded directly into the verification application. If you are not able to upload these, you can still complete online verification, but you will be required to bring or mail your documents to the school building.

What if I don't have....

A Parent Portal Account

Contact your school office staff to get signed up for the Portal. If you have an account but have forgotten your username or password, you can use the "Forgot your username?" and "Forgot your password?" links on the Portal sign-in page. You can find more information about the Parent Portal here

A computer at home

You can complete online verification from a smartphone or tablet, although we recommend using a laptop or desktop for the larger screen size. You can also visit any school building during office hours, and they will have computers available in the front office for you to complete the process.

Internet Access

Online verification kiosks will be set up in each school building during the summer. Feel free to bring your proof of residency documents and stop by any building during office hours. A staff member will be there to assist you through the process and answer any questions.
