The residency of each student enrolled in a District public school must be verified by the current LEA of enrollment and LEAs do not receive Uniform Per Student Funding Formula (UPSFF) funds for unverified residents. This training will cover residency verification requirements and related topics for the upcoming 2021-22 school year. Participants will be informed of their responsibility to complete residency verification as well as guidance on how to enroll District residents and non-residents.
