New Student Residency Verification Procedures
Welcome to the Fremont Union High School District! We are looking forward to having you and your student join us next year as part of the FUHSD family. High School is an exciting time for parents and students alike and we are eager to get to know you and spend the next years working together as a team to make your student successful.
As the first step in registering for school, we will be asking you to participate in a residency verification process in order to verify that you live within our District boundaries. Our district receives our funding directly from the property taxes paid by our community residents, with no funds provided by the state based on enrollment. Our residency efforts help insure that that every tax dollar of our community is used to support students that live with the parent/guardian full time within our boundaries.
ALL NEW STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE RESIDENCY VERIFICATION AT THE ENROLLMENT AND RESIDENCY OFFICE.
Please remember the following:
- A student can have only one residence for the purposes of establishing residency and must live with a parent or legal guardian
- PO Boxes will not be accepted for residency purposes
- All documents used for residency must be CURRENT, VALID and ORIGINAL!
