Residency Verification and Registration

District 86 is beginning preparations for the 2024-25 school year, which will include working with families to complete the registration and residency verification process for next year. 

Board policy and the Illinois School Code state that students must live within the district's boundaries in order to attend our schools. We verify residency on an annual basis to ensure that we are operating in accordance with the law and utilizing taxpayer dollars to educate students from our community. 

Similar to previous years, in an effort to streamline processes based on feedback from families, the district will again use a third-party vendor, the CLEAR public database, to automatically verify student address information. This process is an efficient way to assure that students enrolled in our schools are residents of the D86 community. The annual residency verification process safeguards district resources for taxpayers and is convenient for families.

CLEAR uses the parent's name and address to crosscheck the information against public electronic databases. This process is completed each Spring.

In an effort to aid the speed and efficiency of this critical process, we are utilizing the Infinite Campus Parent Portal.  Similar to previous years, the portal will house your student's schedule, attendance, grades, assignments, fee information, etc.

Any student whose registration has not been completed by August 1, 2024, will be made inactive in our system and have their schedule dropped.

Below is information parents/guardians can use to set up their Infinite Campus Parent Portal account
