Proof of Residency Requirements

In order for a student to attend District 73, an adult parent/guardian of the registering child is required to provide one piece of documentation related to each of the three categories listed below:

State Law (105 ILCS 5/10-20.12b, 105 ILCS 5/14-1.11a) requires that students attending District 73 be bona fide residents of the District. Generally, to be a bona fide resident, a student must live with a parent or guardian who resides within the District. Any person who knowingly enrolls or attempts to enroll in the schools of a school district on a tuition free basis a pupil known by that person to be a nonresident of the District or any person who knowingly or willfully presents to any school district any false information regarding the residency of a pupil for the purpose of enabling that pupil to attend any school in that district without the payment of a nonresident tuition charge shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor. Anyone who knowingly or willfully provides false information shall be referred for criminal prosecution.

IMPORTANT: District 73 may require any student to prove residency at any time.
