Proof of Residence Information
Posted 05/15/2018 01:54PM
Before school starts in August, all students are required to provide proof of residence (POR). You can simply bring a copy to the ESE front office. After the last day of school, hours are Monday thru Thursday from 7:30am to 5pm. Closed on Fridays.
Returning students can now provide POR dated the month of May or later. Note that the POR must show service in May or later. No additional POR will be required at the start of school in August.
If the residence changes after a POR has been provided to the school, it is the parent or guardian's responsibility to notify the campus. The student(s) may or may not be able to attend the school based upon the original POR.
Satisfactory proof of residence includes:
· Electric Bill
· Gas Bill
· Water Bill
· Lease Agreement (The lease agreement is only acceptable if it is new (30 days or less) or due to the arrangement of your lease agreement you will not have a utility bill. Other documentation may be requested when a utility bill is not available. The lease agreement must list the student occupants.)
Any of the above forms of proof utilized by MISD residents must show a service address. Lease agreements must show a beginning and ending date and the address of the property with signatures from both parties. Families who are in the process of building a home will need to first check with Student Services on applicable Board Policies and guidelines for enrollment.
Failure to provide the necessary documentation may result in enrollment delays or withdrawal from school.
