Residency Requirements

Board Policy:

The right to attend a Troy 30-C School is extended to residents who live within the District’s boundaries.

Students who move into the school district to live with relatives or friends for the purpose of attending any Troy 30-C school are not considered legal residents in the district and, therefore, cannot be admitted to attend school in the District. Pursuant to Troy 30-C's Board of Education Policy  7:60 Residence every family must provide evidence of residency before enrollment.

In cases of divorced or separated parents, it is the residence of the parent who has legal custody of the student. Please provide the school with a legal Court order. If both divorced or separated parents retain legal custody, it is the residence of the parent who provides the student’s primary regular fixed night-time abode and is responsible for educational and emergency medical decisions.

IMPORTANT:

The School District reserves the right to evaluate the evidence presented, and merely presenting the items listed in the enrollment procedure does not guarantee admission. The District policy is here.

It is contrary to the policy of the Board of Education to admit students who do not legally reside with their parents or legal guardians within the District boundaries. The information you provide will be used by school officials to help establish the eligibility of each applicant for admission.

If a student is determined to be a nonresident of the District for whom tuition must be charged, the persons enrolling the student are liable for maximum non-resident tuition from the date the student began attending a District as a non-resident.

WARNING:

Falsification of information on residency or documents submitted to the District may result in your child being excluded from school, which exposes you to monetary liability under Illinois law for payment of maximum non-resident tuition for such time as your child was illegally enrolled in the District.

Any person who knowingly enrolls or attempts to enroll in this School District on a tuition free basis a student known by that person to be a non-resident of the District is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a $500.00 fine and up to 30 days in jail, and will be reported to law enforcement (105 ILCS 5/10- 20.12b(e).

Any person who knowingly or willfully presents any false information regarding residency of a student for the purpose of enabling that student to attend any school in that district without the payment of a nonresident tuition charge is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a $500.00 fine and up to 30 days in jail, and will be reported to law enforcement(105 ILCS 5/10-20.12b(f).
