• Residency Documentation for Student Eligibility/Enrollment


    The following forms of documentation may demonstrate a student’s eligibility for enrollment in the Washington Township Public School District. The exact documentation necessary to demonstrate eligibility under specific provisions in the law will be indicated in the appropriate section of the registration form.  

    •    Property tax bills, deeds, contracts of sale, leases, mortgages, signed letters from landlords, and other evidence of property ownership, tenancy, or residency
    •    Voter registrations, licenses, permits, financial account information, utility bills, delivery receipts, and other evidence of personal attachment to a particular location 
    •    Court orders, State agency agreements, and other evidence of court or agency placements or directives
    •    Receipts, bills, canceled checks, and other evidence of expenditures demonstrating personal attachment to a particular location, or, where applicable, to support the student
    •    Medical reports, counselor or social worker assessments, employment documents, benefit statements, and other evidence of circumstances demonstrating, where applicable, family or economic hardship, or temporary residency
    •    Affidavits, certifications, and sworn attestations pertaining to statutory criteria for school attendance, from the parent, guardian, person keeping an “affidavit student,” adult student, the person(s) with whom a family is living, or others as appropriate
    •    Documents pertaining to military status and assignment
    •    Any business record or document issued by a governmental entity
    •    Any other form of documentation relevant to demonstrating entitlement to attend school

    The totality of information and documentation you offer will be considered in evaluating an application, and, unless expressly required by law, the student will not be denied enrollment based on your inability to provide a certain form(s) of documentation where other acceptable evidence is presented.

    You will not be asked for any information or document protected from disclosure by law, or pertaining to criteria that are not legitimate bases for determining eligibility to attend school. You may voluntarily disclose any document or information you believe will help establish that the student meets the requirements of the law for entitlement to attend school in the district, but we may not, directly or indirectly, require or request:

    •    Income tax returns
    •    Documentation/information relating to citizenship or immigration/visa status, unless the student holds or is applying for an F-1 visa
    •    Documentation/information relating to compliance with local housing ordinances or conditions of tenancy
    •    Social security numbers
