Families must provide proof of residency before a child can be enrolled. Residency is the address at which the child physically resides, keeps their personal belongings and receives mail. This residency must be a street address. Post Office boxes are not accepted.
Falsification of any information or documents relative to this verification procedure may result in withdrawal of this student.
Students living within district boundaries on the first day of school
One document from each category is required.
Category A (requires 1 document):
- most recent property tax statement;

- current signed residential lease (including a landlord’s name, address, phone number, and lease start and end date)
Category B (requires 1 document):
- current utility bill (gas, electric, water or phone);

Students moving into the district within the first nine weeks of school
An application for enrollment with intent to establish residency must be submitted by families that will not live within district boundaries on the first day of school but plan to move here within the first nine weeks of the school year.
The following applicable documents are also required:
- Building permit and construction agreement if you are building a home
- Accepted offer if you are purchasing a home
- Signed lease if you will be renting (including a landlord’s name, address, phone number, lease start and end date)
Your completed application and required documents should be submitted to the District Registrar. In addition, a tuition check made payable to the Hamilton School District must be included. Please note that tuition cost is determined by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and the District Registrar will notify families of the current total.
Upon establishing residency, families will be required to submit final verification of residency documents from categories A and B above.
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. Falsification of any information or documents relative to this verification procedure may result in withdrawal of the student.
