Beginning with the 2018-19 school year, Eanes ISD will require proof of residency for current families of students transitioning into both 6th- and 9th-grades. This is a mandatory step to confirm the student's enrollment for the upcoming school year. Many other school districts throughout the greater Austin area routinely require resident families to verify where a student lives every day to ensure only those who legally reside full-time within the school district boundaries have access to Eanes ISD's excellent educational resources provided by local tax revenues (unless an out-of-district family has formerly applied for transfer status).
Eanes ISD will provide simple in-person opportunities to submit original documentation verifying current residency BEFORE the 2018-19 school year begins. Remember, this is only for families of rising 6th- and 9th-graders.
Please attend one of the following opportunities located in the Eanes ISD Central Administration building at 601 Camp Craft Rd. For working families, Monday's session will provide extended hours until 8pm. If all documentation is valid and in order, the visit should be brief, straightforward and easy.
June 11-14 (Mon: 12 noon-8pm; Tu-Thur: 8am-4pm; closed Friday)
August 6-10 (Mon: 12noon-8pm; Tu-Fri: 8am-4pm)
Information required for residency verification:
2 Proofs of Residency
(1) Current Signed lease, deed or contract, or most recent tax receipt AND
(2) Current Utility for the property in the parent/guardian's name (electric, gas, water, cable, homeowners/renters insurance)
If residing with another family in Eanes ISD, the following is additionally required:
- Affidavit of Residency completed by BOTH the guardian and the homeowner, signed and notarized in the presence of an Eanes ISD Notary Public. Notaries will be onsite during the residency verification events. Copies of the Affidavit of Residency to complete will be available those days.
PLEASE NOTE: Failure to provide the required proof of residency may result in withholding of class placements or schedules for all students in the family until the household information is verified. Participation in extra-curricular and athletic activities in August may also be withheld until residency verification is completed.
This requirement does not apply to out-of-district transfer students or Eanes ISD employee transfer students. These groups are reviewed separately under additional guidelines.
