  • Preparing for the 2019-2020 School Year

    On April 1, families will receive, in an email, information to complete residency verification for the 2019-20 school year. District 86 has again contracted with a third-party vendor to verify residency electronically. We anticipate that for the majority of students, residency will be verified through this process. For families whose residency cannot be verified, additional proof of residency will be required. 
    Families have the right to opt out of the release of directory information to our third-party vendor for electronic residency verification. Opting out of electronic residency verification will require families to provide the necessary residency documentation.
    Guardians of rising 9th graders will be required to submit a certified copy of your student’s birth certificate to the Registrar.
    Additional information on residency requirements can be found on the District’s website:https://d86.hinsdale86.org/residency
