Affidavit of Parent Residency


    What is shared housing?

    When two or more families are living at one address; a parent (student’s family) and a primary resident. If the parent(s)/ guardian(s) DO NOT have both the mortgage/Rental Agreement and the Utility Bill under their name, they must complete an Affidavit of Residency.


    Where is the Affidavit of Residency completed?

    Affidavits of Residency are completed at the District Office. 


    How many proofs of residency do the Primary Resident and the Parent/Guardian have to provide?

    Both the Primary Resident and Parent/Guardian need to present 4 proofs of residency.


    What if I am new to the area and don't have enough proofs of residency to register?

    Before school starts in August, Affidavits must be completed prior to beginning your student's registration. If school has started, you may request a short time extension after a minimum of two parent proofs of residency have been accepted; time extensions may or may not be granted. Additionally, the primary residents must also have all 4 proofs in order for the extension to be granted.  


    Does my student need to reside at the address given?

    A residence is defined by where a student lives 7 days a week, or over 50% of the time if sharing split custody. Only one address may be used.

    • Addresses not accepted:
      • Business address
      • Childcare address (relative/private provider)
      • P.O Box

    If, at any time, a student’s residence is in question, the district will investigate.  This includes home visits.  If it is determined that false information was given to prove residency, the student will be disenrolled within five days of notification unless a transfer to remain has been approved.  Processing a transfer will not delay enrollment.


    Once completed, do I need to provide all of my proofs at my students' Residency school again?

    No, a copy will be given for you to show at your students' residency school. The school will also receive its own copy.
