Annual Proof of Residency

  • Annual Residency Verification (ARV)

    As District 230 continues to streamline processes based on feedback from families, the district will again use the CLEAR public database to automatically verifiy student address information. This process is an efficient way to assure that students enrolled in our schools are residents of the District 230 community. The annual residency verification process safeguards district resources for taxpayers and is convenient for families.

    CLEAR uses parent's name and address to crosscheck the information againast public electronic databases such as utility companies. This process will be completed in early May.

    If your residency is verified through CLEAR, there will be no need for you to submit any additional paperwork to certify that you live within district boundaries. 

    If your residency is not verified through CLEAR, the school will contact you to inform you of the documents required which can be submitted online using the link below or in-person at the school by appointment. 

    Please contact the Guidance Office at your school with any questions or concerns.
