DETERMINATION AND PROOF OF RESIDENCY
In the State of California, when enrolling a child in public school, the parent/legal guardian/ caregiver must provide current (within 30 days) proof of residency within the school district boundaries.
Government Code 244 defines a residence as: “the place where one remains when not working….and to which one returns for sleep”. It also states, “There can only be one primary place of residence declared for the student.”
Evidence of residency for a pupil living with his or her parent/legal guardian/ caregiver shall be established by current documentation showing the name and address of the responsible adult within the school district. Effective January 1, 2012, recent legislation (AB 207) has added the following to the California Education Code, Section 48204.1, which states that any two of the following documents will be accepted:
- Property tax payment receipts
- Proof of escrow closing within 45 days of requested date of enrollment
- Rental property contract, lease, or payment receipts
- Utility service contract, statement or payment receipts (can be no older than 30 days per CA Ed Code)
- Pay stubs
- Voter registration
- Correspondence from a government agency
- A stack of recent business mail forwarded to the current address
- Written Declaration of Residency executed by the responsible adult enrolling the child per regulations of Assembly Bill 207. Home visits will be conducted to verify residency. Per California Penal Code Section 126, misrepresentation on the Declaration of Residency is considered perjury and is punishable by imprisonment or fine pursuant to subdivision (h) of Section 1170.
Once the residency requirement has been met, your child’s enrollment may proceed.
