No. You only need to it when your student enters the district. If you move, it is important to complete a Change of Address form so you receive information from the district.
5. If we move within the district, do we have to change schools?
No. If you are still residing within the district, you may choose to remain at your current school or to move to the school that aligns with your new school boundaries. In this case, you must come in and file a change of address form and provide documentation of your new address. 

Change of Address

It is important to notify the district and school site if there is a change of address so you continue to receive important communications about your student.
  • A change of address is made by completing the Change of Address form
  • Submit the form to the district office just as you would a regular address verification form
  • You will need to provide proof of your new address
Use this form to file a change of address. You must come to the district office with supporting documents.

Shared Residency

If you are residing with another family and are unable to provide documentation to verify your home address, you will need to complete the Shared Residency Affidavit. A home visit will be done for all families that submit this document as proof of residency. Please note that the form is a legal document and must be notarized and completed by both the homeowner and the parent.  If your student is an incoming freshman for the 2019-20 school year, we will not accept this form of verification until the beginning of July 2019.  
There are two sections to the Shared Residence Verification form:
  1. Parent/Guardian section – to be completed by the family living in the residence who will be attending school in the  district
  2. Homeowner/Apartment Owner section – this form is to be completed by the owner of the property. This person must also come to the district to do address verification with the appropriate documents.
