Proof of Residency


At least one parent/guardian from all district 95 families must prove residency each school year.

The Residency Event will be held at Lake Zurich High School.

Monday, August 8th – 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Tuesday, August 9th – 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

High School Students

A parent must have proven Residency at the Residency Event or at the District office after the Residency Event in order for their high school student to have their picture taken and receive their ID and schedule.  Once the parent proves Residency they will find a card in their packet that the student must bring to the high school to complete the process.


Three documents are required to verify residency. You must present proof of residency within Lake Zurich Community Unit School District 95 by providing one document from Category I AND two documents from Category II.

  • Current mortgage statement or mortgage papers/closing papers (for closing within last 60 days)

IMPORTANT: District 95 reserves the right to evaluate the evidence presented, and merely presenting the items listed does not guarantee admission.

WARNING: If a student is determined to be a non-resident of the District for whom tuition must be charged, the persons enrolling the student are liable for non-resident tuition from the date the student began attending a District school as a non-resident.

A person who knowingly enrolls or attempts to enroll in this School District on a tuition-free basis a student known by that person to be a nonresident of the District is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor, except in very limited situations as defined in State law (105 ILCS 5/10-20.12b(e).

A person who knowingly or willfully presents to the School District any false information regarding the residency of a student for the purpose of enabling that student to attend any school in the District without the payment of a nonresident tuition charge is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor (105 ILCS 5/10-20.12b(f).
