Residency Verification for 2016-17 Required by June 10
The Ball-Chatham School District is asking all parents and guardians who plan to re-enroll their children for the 2016-17 school year to confirm residency before June 10. The need to periodically confirm residency for all students is important in order to ensure that we are being good stewards of taxpayer monies. These monies are utilized specifically to educate those students who reside in the Ball-Chatham School District.
To help with this process, parents have the following options:
  • Mail in copies of the required residency items, (see list attached) from Category 1 and Category 2, and include the residency form (attached) to the District Office – 201 W. Mulberry, Chatham, IL 62629, before June 10, 2016.  
  • Drop off copies of the required documents (see list attached) from Category I and Category 2, and include the residency form (attached), to the District Office – 201 W. Mulberry, Chatham, IL 62629, before June 10, 2016.
  • Email copies of the required residency items, (see list attached) from Category 1 and Category 2, and include the residency form (attached) to: residency@bcsd5.org before June 10, 2016. ​
Residency documents will be reviewed and if further information is needed, parents/guardians will be notified by the District Office. The District will NOT be in contact if all documents are received, and residency IS confirmed. Please note that residency must be verified before students can be registered (either online July 18 through August 5) or through walk-in registration (11 a.m. to 6 p.m., August 4, at each school). Notification of schedules and/or teachers will not be made available until residency is confirmed and registration is complete.
For questions, please call any of our school’s main offices, or the District Office at 483-2416, ext. 0. We appreciate your cooperation on this request as we begin staffing plans for the upcoming school year.
