Woodland District 50 Announces Proof of Residency Dates
Parents can attend the event August 7-9 to confirm residency in District 50.
Woodland Community Consolidated School District 50 will hold its sixth annual proof of residency event August 7 through August 9 at the Woodland Middle School gymnasium, 7000 Washington Street, Gurnee.
Last year, more than 97 percent of families proved residency prior to the first day of school, amounting to approximately 4,163 families.
The purpose of the event is to confirm that all students attending Woodland Schools are District 50 residents. In an effort to serve the number of families participating in this event, the following schedule has been
created to provide families with options of days and times to attend. There is no advantage to attending a particular day or time.
August 7: 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
August 8: 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
August 9: 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Please expect longer lines on the first day.
During the residency event, parents will be given their child(ren)'s school, class and bus information. Families will have the opportunity to pay fees, deposit funds in lunch accounts, obtain information regarding PTA and the Woodland Educational Foundation, obtain forms for fee waivers and free or reduced lunch applications and view classroom lists for every school.
In addition, Spirit Wear will be available for purchase during the Proof of Residency Event. Please note that PTA accepts credit cards, cash and check/money order (made out to Woodland PTA) when purchasing Spirit
Wear. All other PTA-related purchases may be done with cash and check/money order. Spirit Wear will NOT be sold at Sneak Preview or during Curriculum Nights due to limited volunteers at these events. This will be the only chance to purchase Spirit Wear in the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year.
PTA will also offer a limited number of school supply packs, as well as Book Socks during Proof of Residency. Credit cards will be accepted for both purchases.
Should you wish to support PTA and volunteer this school year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of the Proof of Residency event, a survey will be conducted regarding ways to improve communications and community engagement practices from the Board of Education.
This is the sixth year that the district has enhanced measures that require Woodland families to prove residency.
