A public school district is responsible for providing educational services for children of school age who are residents of that district. The child and their parent(s) (birth, custodial, adoptive) or legal guardian must provide documentation showing that their primary residence (the house in which they live) lies within the district/school boundaries. For information on Non-Resident Enrollment, scroll to the bottom of this page.
To ensure that PCSD students are receiving educational services from the appropriate district, all students in all schools are required to provide proof of residency at back-to-school registration. Proof of Residency is required every year, and if the student moves during the school year. Unscheduled home address checks may be done at the district’s discretion to verify residency. This information is kept confidential and will be retained for the current school year only. By submitting proof of residency to your child’s school, you certify that the information you provide is true and accurate. Evidence that false information was provided will result in immediate withdrawal of the student from school, no exceptions.

NOTE: The proof of residency requirement does not apply to homeless students. The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act provides education services to homeless children and youth who lack a fixed, regular, adequate nightly residence. See below for more information.
The McKinney-Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act and PCSD Board of Education Policy 10010 ensure the educational rights for students who are homeless. The term “homeless” means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nightly residence. Students may be eligible to receive services under the McKinney-Vento Act if they or their family live in any of the following situations:
- Sharing housing with other persons due to loss of housing or economic hardship.
- In a motel, hotel, or weekly rate housing due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations.
- In an emergency or transitional shelter (homeless shelter, domestic violence shelter, youth shelter).
- In a car, park, campground, abandoned building, bus station, or similar public or private place without adequate facilities (not designed for heat, electricity, or water).
- In temporary foster care or awaiting foster care placement.
If any of the situations above apply to you, you may complete a Student Residency Questionnaire and submit it to your school’s administrative secretary, registrar, or counselor:

The application and processing fee must be submitted directly to the District Office.
You must be approved for non-resident enrollment BEFORE the student can be enrolled at a school.
