ALL PUPILS NEW AND RETURNING, Pre-Kindergarten to Grade 8

According to the Board policy adopted in June 1994, the Board of Education has directed the administration to request verification of residence for K-8 students during registration. The district re-registers each student in grades K-8 each year. Parent/guardians must show proof of residency at the time of registration each year by providing 1) a current lease, mortgage payment or rent/home insurance; 2) a current utility bill; and 3) a Driver's license, State or valid photo ID for the parent/guardian that includes full legal name with middle initial and parent/guardian date of birth.

A person who enrolls or attempts to enroll in this school district on a tuition-free basis a student known by that person to be a non-resident of the District is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor, except as defined by State law (105 ILCS 5/10-20, 12b(e). If a student is determined to be a non-resident of a District for whom tuition must be charged, the person(s) enrolling the student are liable for non-resident tuition from the date the student began attending a District school as a non-resident. The District residency officer is responsible for checking that the children in our District are legally living in the District.

Students transferring from other Illinois public schools must present copy of their Illinois Student State Transfer Form at the time of registration. In addition, Special Education students should be registered at their home school. Special education students that attend an out-of-district school should register at LakeView.

PUPILS NEW TO ZION DISTRICT 6

Illinois state law allows children to attend Kindergarten if they are age five on or before September 1 of that same year. Those who will not be five years old until September 2 or later must wait until the following school year to begin Kindergarten. A birth certificate is requested for Kindergarten registration.

Transfer Students
Students transferring from another Illinois public school must submit a copy of the Illinois State Student Transfer Form at the time of their registration.

Parents of students transferring into Zion Elementary School District 6 from an out-of-state public school district must certify in writing that the student is not currently serving a suspension or an expulsion imposed by the school from which the student is transferring.

A student transferring from an Illinois or out-of-state public school district shall not be permitted to attend class if he or she has been suspended or expelled because of possessing of a weapon (as defined in the Gun Free Schools Act), knowingly possessing, selling, or delivering a controlled substance or cannabis, or for battering a staff member of the school.
