    An important message about residency.
    Students attending District 63 schools must legally reside within the District’s boundaries. It is a criminal offense to enroll a non-resident student, except as allowed by law. Public school districts are supported by local tax dollars, and falsifying residency is an added burden on our taxpayers.

    D63 checks the residency of all new and returning students in May each year using a public records database called CLEAR Batch. Families may receive an email from the District requesting additional information in order to enroll their student(s).
