Do I need to prove residency during registration?

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, District 69 has identified alternative methods to verify residency, and returning families will not be required to submit proof of residency documents at the time of registration for the 2020-21 school year. You will be contacted at a later date to provide the necessary residency documents.

Are there any paper forms to complete?

Returning student registration is completed online through the Parent Portal. Most parents will not have any paper forms to complete and turn in to their school’s main office. Parents of incoming Kindergarten, 2nd grade, and 6th grade students will need to complete and turn in the appropriate health packet.
