Proof of Residency/Prueba de Residencia

Beaufort County School District (BCSD) requires proof of residency of all students every school year.  Proof of residency must be provided for a student’s enrollment to be complete.  The intent of this process is to verify that students attend the school based on where they reside.  You must provide documentation showing that you live at the address in accordance with Federal, State, and District guidelines.  If your address changes, you must notify the school within 30 calendar days.

BCSD does not discriminate in admission to school on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, immigrant status, English-speaking status, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal and state law.

BCSD will admit all children who live in the District, provided that the child lives with his/her parent, legal guardian, or foster parent.

A residence is that place where one has established his/her home and where one is habitually present, and to which, when one departs, he/she intends to return.  Merely superficial residence in the BCSD, obtained for the sole or primary purpose of taking advantage of BCSD facilities, will not entitle the child in question to school attendance privileges.
