In order for a student to enroll in Jordan School District, state law requires that parents or guardians provide evidence to establish residency (Utah Code §53G-6-302-306). The Utah State Office of Education provides school districts with a “Proof of Residency Model Procedures” form (see below) which identifies the documents allowed to establish residency.
The “Student/Family Residency Questionnaire” has been developed to assist schools in determining the status of a student’s residency and is provided in both English and Spanish. Parents/guardians are required to fill out this form at the time of registration or enrollment.
Student residency and guardianship situations can vary, such as:
- Student lives with custodial parent/legal guardian;
- Student lives with non-custodial parent, grandparent, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, etc.;
- Student resides with a responsible adult;
- Student is emancipated or married;
- Student is homeless;
- Student is supervised by a state agency;
- Student is a USOE approved exchange student;
or, a student is residing in the state, but the parent or legal guardian is not.
