Shared Residency Procedure
Shared Residency Procedure (beginning 2023-2024 school year)
Students and parents who live with another family must apply for Shared Residency. The homeowner and parent/guardian must make an appointment with the campus registrar at the time of enrollment to complete an Affidavit of Residency notarized by an SISD employee. The Affidavit is a formal, sworn statement by both parties. The homeowner must also provide a bill such as an electric or water bill with their name and address listed on the bill.

In order to complete the registration process under a Shared Residency, the parent must provide a Driver’s License with the same address as the residence and one current document from the four following categories. If the parent does not have a driver’s license with the current address, they have 30 days to provide this information.
- Documents from the employer, such as a paycheck stub with an address listed, personnel papers, tax form, and withholding statements;
- A voter’s registration card mailed to the enrolling party at the address identified as the residence;
- Insurance papers issued in the name of the enrolling party with an address listed;
- Current bill and/or statements from a bank, credit union, department store, gasoline company, or a major credit card company with an address listed.
A person who knowingly falsifies information on a form required for a student’s enrollment in the District will be liable to the District for tuition or other costs, as provided in Education Code 25.001 (h) if the student is not eligible for enrollment but is enrolled on the basis of false information. In addition, presenting false information or false records is a criminal offense under Penal Code 37.10.
The board of trustees or its designee may make reasonable inquiries to verify a person’s eligibility for admission under TEC 25.001 (c). This may include a home visit by a district representative or a law enforcement officer.
