Please note that the District will implement a mandatory residency validation check for the 2018-19 school year with its residency software program. The District plans to complete its parent database cross check prior to the start of the 2018-19 school year. By doing so, a family who may not be residents would be required to enroll in their resident school district rather than starting the year in District 161. Additional information will be communicated at a later date.
