Returning Students Proving Residency

  • Evanston Township High School (ETHS) District 202 requires proof of residency for all current ETHS students who are returning for the upcoming school year. The intent in verifying residency is to ensure compliance with state law and to fulfill the obligation to District 202 taxpayers that ETHS allocate resources to educate all eligible students who legally reside within district boundaries.

    Parents/guardians are required to provide proof of residency to ETHS District 202.

    Residency information must be uploaded to ETHS via the Returning Student Registration Form. To get to the Returning Student Registration form, navigate to Home Access Center > Update Enrollment > Returning Student Registration > Start.

    Parents/guardians who need assistance with Home Access Center or myETHS can email or call 847-424-7121. For in-person help or assistance with scanning documents, please come to the Residency Office (S127). Please complete the Returning Student Registration form online prior to coming in for scanning assistance.

    Families receiving McKinney-Vento assistance must come to the Residency Office and speak with the Residency Officer.

    To ensure compliance with Residency requirements, all documents must be submitted. Once the required documents are submitted and have been reviewed, you will receive an email to indicate that residency has been cleared or additional information is needed.

    If you have any questions about the proof of residency process, please contact the Residency Office at 847-424-7182 or email
