The OSSE (Office of Enrollment and Residency) requires that all new and returning students complete DC Residency Verification Process.
The OSSE rules state as follows:
“To be enrolled in any DC public school, a parent/primary caregiver must show original documents as proof of DC residency for each student assigned to or wishing to attend a traditional public or public charter school in the District. A completed DC Residency Verification Form must be completed to determine residency.”
One of the following items is acceptable to establish DC residency:
If none of the above items are available to verify residency, two of the following items are required:
Please see other forms of verification below:
If you are experiencing homelessness, a ward of the District, and/or a participant in a District public benefits program, such as Medicaid, Supplementation Nutrition Assistance Program, or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families – your school may already have your information. Check with your school official or the school’s homeless liaison.
Verify through the Office of Tax and Revenue (OTR). Re-enrolling families/students are often able to verify residency using OTR residency verification process. The enrolling person must have paid taxes in DC during the previous fiscal year and have the student’s Social Security number. The student must be re-enrolling in the same local education agency and enrolling in grades K-12. Login to the system at ossedctax.com. If successful, your verification will then be available for your school to confirm.
