Residency

The Cypress School District is dedicated to serving all school age children residing within its boundaries.  Parents are required to provide documentation to verify district residency. If the student is residing in the home of a caregiving adult within district boundaries, an affidavit executed by the caregiving adult must be provided in accordance with Family Code 6550.

In all cases of residency other than “fixed permanent” status, including homeless, the district shall re-verify residency at least annually in accordance with Board Policy.  It is the parent’s responsibility to immediately inform the district of address changes or changes to residency status.
