District Residency Notice – June 2021

Dear 219 Parent/Guardian:

Residency verification begins on June 30.

District 219 is committed to protecting taxpayer dollars through our annual residency process.

District 219 will continue to use a tool called the CLEAR Batch system to review your residency. The CLEAR Batch system reviews public records to verify your residency. All households will be reviewed using this system. In some cases, the CLEAR Batch system will locate adequate documentation to verify your residency for the 2021-2022 school year, and you will receive a letter via email in mid-June to indicate that you do not need to verify your student’s residency.

In other cases, the CLEAR Batch system may identify insufficiencies or inconsistencies in public records. In addition, a group of households will be selected at random, regardless of the results of the CLEAR Batch system search, to provide documentation to verify their residency. People who fall into one of these categories will receive a letter via email in mid-June to indicate that you will need to provide documentation to verify your student’s residency. Online residency verification will begin June 30. District staff will also be available online (Zoom or phone) to assist on July 2.

Fee waiver forms and health forms (freshmen & seniors) can also be uploaded and processed online.  District staff will be available to assist with these forms as well.

More information regarding textbook pick up, chrome book pick up and Freshman Orientation will be available in July.

Here are a few important summer enrollment dates to note:
