Antioch, IL asked in Education Law for Illinois

Q: Can I use my parents address to register our kids for school? We live one town over.

We have done this for a few years. This year we registered our kids. They took our money. Gave us a bus schedule and locker numbers etc. My kids got to school today and they sent them home stating my parents aren't their legal guardian.

A: Using a false address to register your kids for school can potentially lead to legal issues, including residency fraud. School districts typically have residency requirements that students must meet in order to attend their schools. Using an address that is not your actual residence to register your children may violate these requirements and could result in penalties.
