Proving Residency

Students are able to enroll in the Hamilton School District upon proof of residency. Two documents are needed to prove residency in the district. Documents could include:

  • current utility bill (gas, electric, water or phone);
  • closing statement;
  • state or federal benefit statement;
  • current lease; or
  • most recent property tax statement.

If individuals are unable to provide the necessary documents at registration, a parent or legal guardian should complete the Certificate of Residency form and submit to the registrar.

Important: Students are not considered registered and eligible to enroll until the residency verification process is complete.
Wisconsin State Statute 121.77 requires that students attend school in their district of residence and school districts charge tuition to non-resident students. The district investigates and verifies residency, assesses tuition when appropriate and will prosecute if necessary to recover tuition.
