Proof of Residency
Effingham County Schools Board Policy states:
“At any time, upon request by school or district staff, the parent /guardian shall be required to present proof of residency (such as an electric bill, city water bill, etc.) and to certify that the student is a full-time resident, (i.e. 12 months a year). This certification may also be dependent on visual inspection by school district officials.”
Address changes require two proofs of residency.
