IMPORTANT: The School District reserves the right to evaluate the evidence presented, and merely presenting the items listed in the procedure does not guarantee enrollment.
Owning property in District 103 in which you do not reside does not make you a legal resident, and therefore does not qualify your child to attend school in D103. The Illinois School Code mandates that you and your child reside in the attendance area on a permanent basis in order for your child to attend school in the district.
A person who knowingly enrolls or attempts to enroll in the School District on a tuition-free basis a student known by that person to be a non-resident of the District is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor, except in very limited situations as defined in State law (105 ILCS 5/10-20. 12b(e)).
Parents, who falsify their residence information for the purpose of obtaining tuition-free attendance for their children commit a criminal offense. Students will be unenrolled and families will be subject to legal action, including recovery of tuition for attending the school.
