Residency Verification

 

2020-21 RESIDENCY VERIFICATION 

Step 1:  Annual Residency Verification (This process must be completed by May 31, 2020.)

 

EPCHS will collect residency documentation beginning April 8, 2020 for the 2020-21 school year.  Families are encouraged to have their annual residency documentation submitted by 

May 31, 2020.  Families who complete residency verification by May 31, 2020 will receive a $25.00 fee discount per student.    

 

A family only needs to complete the residency process once each year.  If you enrolled an incoming freshman in January/February of this year and completed the residency verification, you have already complied with the residency verification process for not only your freshman, but for siblings who currently attend EPCHS.  Step 1 is therefore complete and you will receive the $25.00 fee discount for each student.  

 

Families must complete 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 (refer to FAQ below for iPhone and/or iPad scanning instructions).  Residency questions should be directed to Megan Beglin at 708/398-1275 or residency@evergreenpark.org.  In person residency assistance will be announced when available.  


 

Step 2:  Skyward Verification and Fee Payments/Waivers (This process must be completed by July 31, 2020.) More information will be available on our website and emailed home after May 31, 2020.
 

 

Step 3:  Student schedule released in August, 2020

 


 

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

 

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.

 

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.

I have limited access to the Internet and/or have limited computer skills, what should I do?

 

In person residency assistance will be announced when available.  In the meantime, any questions should be directed to mbeglin@evergreenpark.org or by calling 708/398-1275.

 

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.

 

What is the deadline to have the residency documentation submitted?

 

Although the process can begin on Wednesday, April 8, 2020, the deadline for residency documentation is May 31, 2020.  After May 31, 2020, failure to submit residency documentation can delay your registration for the 2020-21 school year, and require attending at least one parent/guardian on campus residency/Skyward verification session. 

 

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

 

No.  Fees for the 2020-21 school year will be collected in July.  Information on the fee payment process will be shared with families in June.

 

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.  

 

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.  All three pages must be completed.  The property owner/lessee on the Affidavit of Residency is required to provide proof of residency and submit copies of the following:  current driver’s license or State ID, mortgage statement, homeowners insurance, or lease, one current utility bill. The parent/legal guardian on the Affidavit of Residency must submit copies of the following:  current driver’s license or State ID AND copies of two of the following: W-2, pay stub, bank statement, Public Aid, Medicaid, vehicle insurance, vehicle registration or other acceptable proof of living at the address used on the notarized affidavit.  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!
