NEW STUDENTS OR THOSE WITH CHANGE OF ADDRESS
In addition to two (2) proofs of residency, the verified resident must provide copy of the Property Tax Card, Property Deed, or other document that states the residency property's Section, Township, and Range.
- Legal guardian(s) must also provide a copy of the court order appointing guardianship. If a petition for guardianship has been filed and the decree is pending, a certified copy of the filed petition for guardianship must be provided.
- If residency is questioned any time throughout the year, the parent/guardian will be required to provide a third proof of residency.
- The parent or legal guardian of a NEW student to the district who cannot provide 2 proofs of residency due to circumstances beyond their control, may request a 30-day TEMPORARY admission to school from the Superintendent's office, which will allow them 30 days to become compliant with residency requirements. If 2 proofs of residency cannot be provided at the end of thirty days, the student will no longer be allowed to attend Neshoba County School District.
