Submitting Proof of Residency

***Residency Document Upload (Opening July 29, 2019)***

Highland Park ISD requires annual proof of residency for each family.  This is a standard practice in many other school districts, and it is intended to protect taxpayers whose dollars pay for the excellent education our students receive.


July 29 - August 22, 2019


If the student’s residency paperwork is complete and current, only the following is required for annual proof of residency:

  • All pages of a water or electric bill. (No gas, phone or cable)
    • Dates of service (not billing dates) during June, July or August 2019
    • Address matches the family’s in-district address as listed in Skyward
  • Each student’s name, campus and grade level must be submitted along with each family’s bill.

If the residency paperwork requires documents in addition to a water or electric bill, such as a lease or affidavit or if you have all new documents due to a change of address, submit the documents directly to the campus.

If you live in a residence in which all bills are paid through the lease or homeowner's dues, please use the district affidavit to submit in lieu of the bill. Click below to download the affidavit. Submit the completed affidavit, including the names of your students, directly to the campus.


The quickest and easiest way to submit your proof of residency is by using the online form below.
