Annual Residency Verification
We are happy to share that we are updating our district practice for the Annual Residence Verification process. In an effort to honor parent time, we will be using the latest technology to verify residency by working with a third party software service.
The software will allow staff to conduct electronic residence verification for the district. The intent of the software is to:
1. Significantly reduce parent time needed to satisfy annual residence verification.
2. Conduct residence verification in an efficient manner.
We will be using this technology service for the Annual Residence Verification process starting February 13, 2020. The electronic residence verification process will provide residence verification for 80%-90% of IUSD families. This will leave approximately 10%-20% of families that will need to provide site staff with standard residence verification documents for a manual review.
Parents will receive notification beginning on February 28, 2020 regarding the status of their residence verification. If the student’s residence was verified electronically, parents will not need to submit anything at this time. If the student’s residence was not verified electronically, parents will need to provide site staff with two proofs of residency along with an updated Residence Affidavit. The manual review of residency documents must be completed by March 25, 2020. For your convenience, a list of standard residence verification documents can be found here.
