    Families were allowed to complete registration in the spring; however, their students are not enrolled until they show proof that they live within the district boundariesThe purpose of verification is for the district to confirm the child’s age and that the family’s address is within district boundaries.

    Parents need to bring the following:

    • ORIGINAL birth certificate with the seal (copies are not accepted)

    • Proof of residency:
      •  Category 1 (must provide ONE document)
        • Mortgage papers
        • Signed lease
        • Real-estate tax bill
          • (If an affidavit from a local resident who attests to the registrant living with them at no cost is submitted, the homeowner is still required to provide one of the Category 1 documents.)


      • Category 2 (must provide TWO documents)

                        Must be current

        • Gas, water, or electric bill
        • Driver’s license
        • Home/apartment insurance papers
        • Auto registration
        • Voter registration 

    You will not be able to complete the full registration process until you have proven residency and been provided a "SnapCode" by the district office.  


    4. Submit registration

    Once the above is completed, you will receive an individual “SnapCode” to continue the registration process at home. You will use the account information that you created in the pre-registration step to finalize the process and pay fees.
