AFFIDAVIT OF RESIDENCE
Northside requires evidence that a student resides in the district before the student can be enrolled. Acceptable documents for verifying residency include a current, active utility bill (current or prior month), or a sales, lease, or rental contract. There are, however, occasions, where a family is living with another family or for some other reason cannot meet district requirements for proof of residency – no current utility receipt or sales, lease or rental contract in their name.
Even so, the family may be legitimately residing in Northside and the district is obligated to enroll the family’s child. In situations where families cannot show proof of residency, the family may enroll the child by completing a notarized AFFIDAVIT OF RESIDENCE (AOR).
