Residency Status Of Students

United ISD Attorney Juan Cruz on the charge that school district's residency status checks are a mere threat.
"That's not the intention of the district to threaten," he said. "It's just to ensure fairness to the district's taxpayers."

A friend recently told me that the new United High School has reached near capacity and that it won't be too long before they resort to using portables. Residency checks will placate those who pay UISD taxes but it might also help with the challenge of overcrowding.

  1. I've had my address used for such purposes (although not in the UISD district).

  2. Forgot to add: I didn't volunteer my address; someone just used it to get their kid into a nearby school. I didn't know about it until I started getting notices & progress reports sent to my house.

  4. A family member uses a different address so the kids can attend Nixon HS. But I think she pays UISD taxes.

  6. No, that person is not automatically a "law breaker." For example, if this person is a "joint managing conservator" of their children, he or she can register their children in the school where either parent lives.
