Rancho Santa Fe School District Residency Verification

The following proofs of residency are required ANNUALLY for EVERY family (no exceptions).

California law requires public school districts to annually verify the residency of pupils. To comply with this requirement and to verify eligibility for enrollment of a child in the Rancho Santa Fe School District, the parent or legal guardian must submit reasonable evidence of proof of residency within the Rancho Santa Fe School District boundaries. The District’s residency rules are set forth in Board Policy 5027, “Enrollment of Children Whose Parents or Guardians Reside within the District.

 

If you rent/own property within the boundaries of the District, Proof of residency must be established by submitting a Parent/Legal Guardian Declaration of Residency Form AND two proofs of residency:

 

First Proof:

  1. Property Tax Payment Receipt: 2020 Property tax payment receipt with parent/legal guardian’s name, physical address, and APN. (If property is held in trust, please submit documentation establishing parent/legal guardian’s relationship to trust).
  2. Current Rental/Lease Agreement: Current rental/lease agreement signed by Lessee and Lessor, including physical address and APN. Lease agreements must be updated each year by submitting new lease/extension papers to the District prior to the expiration of the lease. Lease agreements that convert to a month-to-month lease require an updated lease or two current forms of residency verification every 3 months.
  3. Deed: If you have recently purchased a home and have not paid current year’s property tax bill, you may submit a copy of the deed. (If property is held in trust, please submit documentation establishing parent/legal guardian’s relationship to trust).

Second Proof:

  1. A utility company statement with parent/legal guardian’s name and physical address (must be within 3 months of registration).
  2. An insurance company statement or payment receipt with parent/legal guardian’s name and physical address (must be within 3 months of registration).
  3. Bank statement with parent/legal guardian’s name and physical address (must be within 3 months of registration).
  4. Current voter registration card with parent/legal guardian’s name and physical address.
  5. Correspondence from a government agency with parent or legal guardian’s name and physical address (must be within 3 months of registration).

 

Alternatively, if you reside with another individual within the boundaries of the District and the property/lease is not in your name, you must provide all of the following:

  1. A Parent/Guardian Declaration of Residency Form;
  2. A Notarized Property Owner/Lessor Declaration of Residency Form; and
  3. All of the following proofs of residency:  
    • Two proofs of residency for the owner/landlord.
    • One proof of residency for the parent/legal guardian.

The final step of the registration process is a required in-person appointment for all new families to the school district and currently enrolled families who are leasing or are sponsored by a family member/employer. The purpose of the appointment is to review the completed on-line registration form and required residency documentation. Once the on-line registration form is complete, a link will be emailed to you to schedule a short appointment (5-10 minutes) at your convenience.
