Verification of Residency

RESIDENCY VERIFICATION PROCEDURES AND REQUIRED FORMS

Parents/guardians of incoming 9th graders and other individuals whose circumstances require re-verification of residency (such as an expiring lease) must present certain documents to verify their residency. 

Typically we would require all original documentation be presented in person, however, because of the current situation, we will accept documents in the following manner:

  • You can scan your lease and two additional proofs of residency (see below) to Mary Kay Sanchez at msanchez@elmhurst205.org
    Please be mindful that your lease must reflect that you are residing within our District's boundaries on the first day of school.
  • OR you may bring in copies of your documents to the District 205 Center, 162 S. York, and put in the drop box located in the vestibule of the building between the hours of 8 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday. 

When submitting documentation, please include the name, grade and school of all children that will be in attendance during the 2020-2021 school year. Please note that if there are questions regarding your lease, we may reach out to you or call your landlord for verification. Failure to provide proof of residency will result in the student's schedule being pulled and course selections removed.
