Residency Verification


Only students who are Elmwood Park residents may attend District 401 schools, except as provided in Section 7:60 of the Board of Education's District Policy Manual or in Illinois law.

A student's residence is the same as the person who has legal custody of the student.

Parents/legal custodians must provide documentary proof of residency every year, regardless of how many years they have lived in Elmwood Park.

The first day of school for 2021-22 is Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021. Students will be unenrolled if residency has not been approved.

This means students must be Elmwood Park residents effective Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2021.

The District's residency requirement and related procedures are governed by Section 7:60 of the Board of Education's District Policy Manual.
