Residency verification is a huge concern for school districts. The numbers vary by state but estimates by School Board Associations reveal that approximately 6,000 – 10,000 students in the state, respectively, are attending a school that is not within the district of their actual residency. Ironically, budget cuts at the state and local levels are forcing districts to ensure that all enrolled students meet residency requirements.
Schools spend countless hours and resources babysitting this process to ensure they are only enrolling students whose parent(s) or guardian(s) reside within district boundaries. However, the manual process of filling out proof of identity and residency forms, not to mention faxing or returning the forms back to the school is tiring. K-12 Online to the rescue!
Besides some built-in features that alert school staff of a change of physical residency when parents update their students’ information, K-12 Online has also incorporated new technologies that may assist schools in identifying “out of district??? students even before they enroll.
