• Annual Proof of Residency

    Orland School District 135 will use the CLEAR public database to automatically verify current family address information.  This process was implemented to streamline the process for district families while still assuring that students enrolled in our school are residents within the boundaries of District 135. 

    CLEAR uses parent's name and address to crosscheck the information against public electronic databases such as utility companies.  This process is completed prior to the registration and residency kickoff in early spring.

    If your residency is verified through the CLEAR process, you will not need to submit any additional documentation to certify that you live within the district.

    If your residency is not verified through the CLEAR process, you will be notified to submit the documents through the process listed below.

    Military Exemption

    When a student's change of residence is due to the military service obligation of the student's legal custodian, the student's residence is deemed to be unchanged for the duration of the custodian's military service obligation if the student's custodian made a written request. The District, however, is not responsible for the student's transportation to or from school. If, at the time of enrollment, a dependent child of military personnel is housed in temporary housing located outside of the District, but will be living within the District within 60 days after the time of initial enrollment, the child is allowed to enroll, subject to the requirements of State law, and must not be charged tuition, in according to policy 7:60.
