*NEW THIS YEAR*: Please read the important information below regarding new required
proof of residency guidelines from the Arizona Department of Education.
A.R.S. 15-802 (B) requires school districts to obtain and maintain verifiable documentation of
Arizona residency upon enrollment in an Arizona public school. This documentation must be
provided each time a student enrolls in a school district or charter school in this state, and
reaffirmed during the district or charter’s annual registration process via the district or charter’s
annual registration form.
The Arizona Residency Documentation Form must be completed in the office and returned to
your child’s homeroom teacher. Proof of residency will be a copy of any of the following:
Valid Arizona Driver’s License, Arizona identification card or motor vehicle registration.
Valid U.S. passport
Real estate deed or mortgage documents
Property tax bill
Residential lease or rental agreement
Water, electric, gas, cable, or phone bill
Bank or credit card statement
Certificate of tribal enrollment or other identification issued by a recognized Indian tribe that
contains an Arizona address.
Documentation from a state, tribal or federal government agency (Social Security
Administration, Veteran’s Administration, Arizona Department of Economic Security)
If unable to provide any of the approved documents to establish proof of residency an original
affidavit signed and notarized by an Arizona resident who attests to your residence in Arizona
with the person signing the affidavit.
If you share a residence with someone we will need to have their notarized signature stating who
resides with them along with copies of any of the approved documents to prove Arizona
residency in their name.
