Residency Verification 2023-2024

This page is for the upcoming school year, 2023-2024

 If your student is transferring in for the remainder of this school year, 2022 - 2023, please contact the  Assistant Principal's office for an appointment. 

West Leyden High School: 847.451.3121

East Leyden High School: 847.451.2067

All new and returning students will be required to provide proof of residency as the first step in the enrollment process for the 2023-24 school year. While most years, only new families need to participate in this process, residency verification for all students occurs periodically to ensure that our schools are accessed by students living within the district. The residency verification process must be completed prior to enrollment, therefore it is important to take action as soon as possible to not delay registration for the upcoming school year.

We are also offering an online option to verify your residency, more information forthcoming on this option. 


All students are required to prove residency for 2023-2024 school year.
