District Annual Residency

All parents/guardians are required to provide proof of residency every year in order for students to continue enrollment in our schools. The District 219 Board of Education is proud of the educational opportunities provided to our students at Niles Township High Schools. As a result, our intent in verifying each student’s residency is not only to ensure that we are in compliance with state law, but also to fulfill our obligation to District 219 taxpayers by allocating our resources to educate only those students who are entitled to attend our schools.  Students who have not verified residency will not be able to start school at District 219 for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

The Illinois School Code mandates that you and your child actually reside, in the attendance area on a permanent basis, in order for your child to attend school in the district. Owning property in District 219 in which you do not reside does not make you a legal resident, and therefore DOES NOT qualify your child to attend school at District 219.

 

Beginning July 6, 2017 through July 16, 2017, you can verify residency via the Campus Portal.

The District reserves the right to conduct a thorough investigation, which may require additional proof of residence.  Parents, who falsify their residence information for the purpose of obtaining tuition-free attendance for their children, commit a criminal offense and may be subject to legal action, including recovery of tuition for attending the school.
