Proof of Residency

A person who knowingly or willfully presents to any school district any false information regarding the residency of a pupil for the purposes of enabling that pupil to attend any school in that district without the payment of a non-resident tuition charge shall be guilty of a Class C misdemeanor. (Public Act 89-0480)

Before a child may register and attend our school, the following conditions must be met:

  • You must be a resident of Emmons District 33
  • You must be able to show two (2) Proofs of Residency (only one (1) may be a utility).
  • (For Renters) In addition to two (2) Proofs of Residency (a current lease plus a current utility or renter’s insurance policy), you must be able to produce the most recent two months’ worth of cancelled rent checks.  

Acceptable examples of Proof of Residency include:

  • An original closing statement from a mortgage and/or bank indicating the parent, legal guardian or legal custodian’s name. Statement may not be older than 60 days.
  • An original lease indicating the parent, legal guardian or legal custodian’s name. Lease must indicate length of lease. If the parent or legal guardian is not the lessee, the lease must indicate the names of all individuals residing at the address. If there is not a lease, please provide a completed Landlord Verification Form.
  • A current (within 60 days), utility bill (gas, water, cable, or electric) indicating the head of household’s name and service address. We do not accept cell phone bills, cable or bank statements.
  • A current tax bill with the property owner’s name and address along with matching photo identification.
  • A current mortgage statement.
  • A current homeowner or renter’s insurance policy (not a bill) stating the covered address.
  • A valid IL driver’s license.
  • Current car insurance or car registration (not expired).

If you are residing with a family member and all forms of legal residency are in their names, the district resident must complete a Property Owner Verification Form. It will also be necessary for the district resident to provide the above items as Proof of Residency
