Residency Verification

  • Township High School District 214 uses an online registration and fee payment process. Once residency verification is complete, you will be able to complete your registration at home or at any location where you have internet access. In the spring, kiosks will be set up in your child's school to assist you. Online registration will begin in June. 

    The first full day of classes will be Wednesday, August 16, 2023. As part of the registration process, the parents/guardians of freshman students will be required to provide proof of residency prior to registration. Walk-in residency verification dates and times are noted below.

    Along with an original birth certificate, families will need the following residency verification documents to register:

    Category A (at least ONE of the following documents)

    • Most recent mortgage bill/statement
