Indiana State Law (I.C. 20-26-11) and the Indiana Department of Education require parents/guardians to provide documentation to verify proof of residency for their students. To see what types of documents are acceptable for address verification, please click here to view the Shelbyville Central School policy regarding documentation. Parents can go to their child's school to provide those documents to the school office.
If you have multiple students, you will need to go to each school to provide documentation or submit a separate form for each individual student. So if you have 3 students, there would be 3 separate form submissions, one for each student.
For returning students, parents/guardians will need to certify that the address in the Student Management System is correct. If the address changes, schools are required to obtain two (2) pieces of documentation to verify the residency.
New Enrollees: Parent/legal guardian must provide three (3) of the items listed below.
