Residency

Residency Information 2017-2018

Registration will begin March 2 for 4k and new 5k and 1st grade students. Those families will need to register at their child’s school using 2Easy Registration. Online registration for all other families in the District will run from April 10-21.
Registration and re-enrollment for the coming school year (2017-2018) will soon be upon us. Our process for Residence Affidavits has been updated to accommodate our new online registration system and residency requirements. The owner of the property where you currently reside will have to complete the Affidavit for Rental/Shared Residence and it must be notarized with official seal prior to registration. A copy is available for download on this page.

You will be receiving more information and directions from your school as registration approaches, but we wanted to provide you with the Residency Affidavit information prior to the beginning of online registration.

When a student and his/her parent/legal guardian move in with a family in an existing home/ apartment, the following documentation is required for non-permanent admission to the district.

· The owner/lessee of the home must execute a notarized affidavit that declares that the family is currently residing with them.
· If the new address is an apartment, the apartment management must supply a verification letter that the student and the parent/legal guardian are residing at the specified address.
· Within 30 calendar days of the submitted the Affidavit, Parents must be able to provide proof of receipt of mail at the residence. This proof may include a
W-2 form, Employment paycheck stub, Bank Account, Vehicle Insurance, Voter Registration Card, and correspondence with State/Local Government services (WIC, DSS, Child Support, etc…). This will not be uploaded into InfoSnap. Please bring to the school when you bring the official notarized affidavit or rental agreement. You can upload the Residence Affidavit to Infosnap during online registration. However, the school will need the official copy for documentation purposes.

A driver’s license will be required from the property owner and parent/legal guardian. Photo IDs will not be accepted as documentation for address verification.

All parents/legal guardians must provide proof of legal residence to the school/district annually.

Spartanburg 2 will investigate and/or act upon all reports of alleged falsified documentation used as proof of residence. The district will also initiate random checks to verify addresses throughout the school year. Should any information presented by the parent/legal guardian or the district resident prove to be false, the student will be immediately withdrawn. Further, federal privacy laws prohibit disclosures of actions taken by the district and therefore will not be reported to the general public, or to those providing reports of false information. Members of the community, who have questions or concerns about tax registrations of local residents, should direct their concerns to the appropriate county auditor’s office.

Legal Reference:
S C Code of Laws, 1976, as amended:
Section 56-19-240 Application for a certificate of title for a motor vehicle

Please note that parents/guardians will be responsible for obtaining notarized affidavit with home owner and uploading to online registration and/or bringing original copy to school with the additional proof of residency. This process will not be completed at the District office as in previous years. If you cannot provide the appropriate documentation for residency requirements, you will need to call Dale Smith (864-578-0128) to set up an appointment with Tabitha Talley in the Office of Student Services. Notarized affidavits will not be processed through the District Office, but assistance in obtaining the proper documentation can be provided by the Office of Student Services. Guardianship/Custody Affidavits will continue to be processed at the District Office by appointment.
