Residency

According to the Crete-Monee School District 201-U Board of Education Policy 7:60:

Only students who are residents of the District may attend a District school except as provided below or in State law. A student’s residence is the same as the person who has legal custody of the student.

A person asserting legal custody over a student, who is not the child’s natural or adoptive parent, shall complete District’s Custody, Care, and Control form and/or Power of Attorney, stating: (a) that he or she has assumed and exercises legal responsibility for the child, (b) the reason the child lives with him or her, other than to receive an education in the District, and (c) that he or she exercises full control over the child regarding daily educational and medical decisions in case of emergency. If the District knows the current address of the child's natural or adoptive parent, the District shall request in writing that the person complete a signed statement or Power of Attorney stating: (a) the role and responsibility of the person with whom their child is living, and (b) that the person with whom the child is living has full control over the child regarding daily educational and medical decisions in case of emergency.

The Crete-Monee School District 201-U engages the services of National Investigations, Inc. to verify the residency of all students in accordance with Illinois School Code 105 5/10-20.12b.

If their research indicates that you are a resident of the Crete-Monee School District, no additional information is needed and no action is required.

If their research indicates that you are a non-resident of the Crete-Monee School District who is living outside district boundaries, an investigator will contact you and provide you with a copy of a letter notifying you that your student is identified to the School District as a non-resident, and you will need to transfer and register within the district boundaries your student resides for the school year.

If you disagree with the findings above, you must contact National Investigations, Inc. at 815-467-7460 (ext. 113) or email [email protected] to set up an informal meeting. At this informal meeting, a Crete-Monee School District 201-U representative, a representative from National Investigations, Inc., and you will review your residency documentation, residency laws, and out-of-district tuition cost and address any questions you may have about the findings.
