RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS

PLEASE NOTE: ALL DOCUMENTS WILL NEED TO BE TAKEN TO THE JR. HIGH OFFICE IN PERSON.

In fairness to our taxpayers and students, Navarro ISD has a strict residency policy. All returning students will be asked for proof of residency.  Students will not be assigned to classes for the 2021-2022 school year without re-establishing residency in the district. In order to prevent duplication of effort, the process will be centralized at the Junior High. Residency approval will then be sent from the Junior High to each campus as appropriate.   Please take the required documents to Navarro Jr. High office located at 6450 N. State Highway 123. The required documents need to be taken to the Jr. High office during the week of July 19-22 and July 26-29. Campus offices are open between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Residency means that the family lives in the district; the fact that a parent may own property in the district does not constitute residency.

If you own your own home:

1. A picture ID (Driver's License) of the parent/guardian registering the student with the current address listed.

2. A current tax receipt from the Guadalupe County Appraisal District showing your name and street address.

3. Two consecutive utility bills showing the address and name of the person seeking to provide residency. ONLY water and electric bills will be accepted. All pages of the bill must be included and must show service dates. The bills must be the two most recent months (June and July). The address must match the family's in-district address as listed in TxEIS. Each student's name, campus and grade level must be submitted with each family's bill.

If you are renting:

1. A picture ID (Driver's License) of the parent/guardian registering the student with the current address listed.

2. A notarized Landlord Statement.

3. Two consecutive utility bills showing the address and name of the person seeking to provide residency. ONLY water and electric bills will be accepted. All pages of the bill must be included and must show service dates. The bills must be the two most recent months (June and July). The address must match the family's in-district address as listed in TxEIS. Each student's name, campus and grade level must be submitted with each family's bill.

If at any time campus or district personnel suspects that a student no longer resides in the district, the parent, military guardian, court-appointed legal guardian or person acting as a parent must provide proof of residency. Failure to provide appropriate documentation will result in immediate withdrawal of the student.

Presenting a false record or falsifying records is an offense under Section 37.10, Penal code, and enrollment of the child under false documents subjects the person to liability for tuition or other costs. TEC Sec. 25.002(3)(d).

A student's entitlement to attend Navarro ISD is determined under the TEC, §25.001(b) A student may attend if the student meets age eligibility requirements and if the student:

  • and either parent reside in your school district;

  • does not reside in your school district but has a parent who does and that parent is a joint or the sole managing conservator or possessory conservator of the student;

  • and the student’s guardian or other person having lawful control of the person under a court order reside within your school district;

  • has established a separate residence under the TEC, §25.001(d);

  • is homeless, regardless of the residence of the student, of either parent, or of the person’s guardian or other person having lawful control of the person;

  • is a foreign exchange student placed with a family that resides in your district by a nationally recognized foreign exchange program,

  • resides at a residential facility that is in your district;

  • resides in your district and either is 18 years old or older or has had the disabilities of minority removed; or

  • does not reside in your school district but has a grandparent who does and who provides a substantial amount of after-school care for the studen

A student may also attend if the student has been placed in foster care and the foster parents reside in your district. A student in the conservatorship of the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) who has been placed by the department at a residence outside your district but who was enrolled at a school in your district at the time of placement is entitled to continue to attend that school until he or she successfully completes the highest grade offered by the school without payment of tuition regardless of whether the student remains in DFPS conservatorship. Also, if a student who is in the conservatorship of the DFPS enrolls in a primary or secondary public school other than the school in which the student was enrolled at the time of placement into conservatorship, the student is entitled to continue to attend that school without the payment of tuition until the student successfully completes the highest grade level offered by that school at the time of enrollment even if the child’s placement is changed to a residence outside the attendance area for that school or the school district. The student is also entitled to continue to attend the school regardless of whether the student remains in the conservatorship of the DFPS for the duration of the student’s enrollment.
