Frequently Asked Questions

Which students must verify residency?
In the past, we verified residency of all newly enrolled students and of returning students in third, seventh and ninth grades. We will now verify residency for all students, new and returning. We will provide plenty of opportunities during the summer to complete this step, since students cannot start school without it.

Why is Park Hill checking every student's residency?
Missouri law requires that we educate only students who live in the Park Hill School District. This is why we are increasing our residency checks to make sure our students live in our district. In order to be more efficient with taxpayer dollars and update our student records, we will ensure all students live in Park Hill, as required by state law.
