Registration FAQ

ALL registration will be done at students’ home schools.

Change of Address

When a student moves within the district during the school year, you must go to your child's school to complete an address change form for your child.

You must present three proofs of residency as listed below: (We do not accept faxes)

3 Proofs of Residency1 or 2 from each Category to make 3 total

NOTE: If you do not own or rent the home in which you are residing, please obtain the residency affidavit and bring the documents listed on the cover sheet of that document.

If the student's new address is in a different school's attendance zone, you have the option to allow the student to complete the school year provided the parent transports the student to and from school. The other option would be to transfer your child to the home school according to the new address.

Automated Mass Communications

District 202 uses a mass communications system incorporating recorded telephone calls, emails and text messages to communicate a wide range of emergency and non-emergency information with families.

This system operates through traditional land lines (telephone messages), computers (emails) and personal smart phones (telephone messages, text messages, emails, apps, etc.)

District 202 and your home school(s) will use all contact information provided as part of student registration as needed and appropriate for automated mass communications.

Please contact your school directly to change how you receive automated mass communications, or to “opt out” of such communications altogether.

Please Note: Any modifications to how you receive automated mass communications will not affect your home school’s ability to reach you through other communications methods, or your school’s ability to use automated mass communications for emergencies.

TRANSMISSION OF STUDENT INFORMATION BY EMAIL

District 202 employees may send unencrypted, personally identifying information about students (such as test scores, report cards, IEP information, discipline letters, etc.) over email.

By registering your student, you agree that District employees may send such information to parents/guardians through email.

Please contact your school directly to modify how you receive personally identifying information about students by email.
