District Residency Requirements

Proof of Residency in the District is Required

Illinois statute requires public school students to be residents of the districts they attend. Due to the number of families who wish to enroll their children in Peru Elementary School District 124, this law is stringently followed in the district, and we do not take students on a tuition basis from other districts. To enroll a child in Peru ESD 124, permanent residency of the custodial parent or legal guardian, as well as the child, is absolutely required. All custodial parents and legal guardians are REQUIRED to provide TWO FORMS of evidence of CURRENT RESIDENCY within the boundaries of the school district. There are no exceptions to this very important requirement.

Two Forms of Identification Required to Register

All parents and guardians are REQUIRED to provide TWO FORMS of evidence of CURRENT RESIDENCY within the boundaries of the school district. Proof of residency must include a driver’s license or other state-issued identification. The second identification must include your name and address, ideally in the form of a current City of Peru utility bill. The district may need to verify these documents or require an notarized Affidavit of Residency if necessary. Registration will not be allowed without absolute proof of residence, regardless of past attendance in the district.

If it is found that a child is illegally registered in the district, that child will immediately be removed from district enrollment and other legal means may be pursued. Permanent residency of the parent or legal guardian, as well as the child, is required. If you have any questions, please contact the Superintendent of Schools Mark Cross at (815) 223-1111. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation with this important matter.
