Residency Verification 2024-2025

This page is for the upcoming school year, 2024-2025

 If your student is transferring in for the remainder of this school year, 2023 - 2024, please contact the  Assistant Principal's office for an appointment. 

West Leyden High School: 847.451.5586

East Leyden High School: 847.451.2067

All new and returning students may be required to provide proof of residency as the first step in the enrollment process for the 2024-25 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. It is important to take action as soon as possible not to delay registration for the upcoming school year.

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