Frequently Asked Questions

  • Q: I have completed the residency verification process for the past three years and I haven’t moved in twenty years, do I have to do it again this year?

    Yes.  Every family needs to complete the residency verification process on an annual basis.  However, if you enrolled an incoming freshman in January/February of this year, you have already complied with the residency verification process for not only your freshman, but for siblings who currently attend EPCHS.


    Q: How can I submit my residency documents?

    Download the Residency Verification Form from the website and return the form electronically via email to residency@evergreenpark.org, along with copies of all the required documents.

    In person residency assistance will take place on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m and Wednesday, June 2, 2021 from 4:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.  In the meantime, any questions should be directed to mbeglin@evergreenpark.org or by calling 708/398-1275.

     

    Q: I have a complex guardianship situation or residency matter that I wish to talk to someone, what should I do?

    Contact Megan Beglin at 708/398-1275 or mbeglin@evergreenpark.org.

     

    Q: What is the deadline to have the residency documentation submitted?

    Although the process can begin on Monday, March 8, 2021, the deadline for residency documentation is June 7, 2021.  After June 7, 2021, failure to submit residency documentation can delay your registration for the 2021-22 school year, and require attending at least one parent/guardian on campus residency/Skyward verification session in August. 

     

    Q: Are there fees due or collected during the annual residency verification process?

    No.  Fees for the 2021-22 school year will be collected in July.  Information on the fee payment process will be shared with families in June.

     

    Q: My family usually qualifies for a fee waiver and/or free lunch, do I need to complete the residency verification process?

    Yes.  Every family needs to complete the residency verification process on an annual basis.  The residency verification process is independent of the fee waiver and free lunch application process.  

     

    Q: I am the parent/legal guardian but I am residing with another family within the district.  What paperwork is needed?

    An Affidavit of Residency must be completed and can be found on page 3 of the Residency Verification Form.  The property owner/lessee on the Affidavit of Residency and the parent/guardian are both required to provide proof of residency documents and submit copies (refer to page 1 of the Residency Verification Form for the list of documents).  If you are utilizing the Affidavit of Residency, you also may be subject to random residency checks by our police liaison, at which time you must show proof that the student and legal parent/guardian reside at said address.  No Exceptions!
