Residency Approval/Verification – Summer 2023

Two sets of letters were emailed today. If you did not receive an email, please contact your registrar.

One set of letters was the Pre-Approval Letter. These were sent to households verified by the CLEAR Batch system. Recipients of this letter do not need to verify residency this summer.

The other set of letters was the Residency Verification Required Letter. These were sent to households who fall into one of two groups: (1) the CLEAR Batch system identified inconsistent or insufficient public records or (2) you have been randomly selected to provide documentation. Upon request, family liaisons are available for language assistance.

District Residency and Enrollment – June 2023

Dear 219 Parent/Guardian:

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 2023-2024 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 in person to assist starting on July 5.

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:

Announce results of CLEAR Batch & random selection mid June
Online Residency Verification* June 30
