    Residency Services

    The Residency Officer fulfills the responsibilities assigned by Evanston Township High School District 202 to verify residency. Students who attend ETHS must reside within its boundaries on a full-time permanent basis (seven days and seven nights). If a parent or legal guardian is registering a student with ETHS for the first time, or has changed residence since registering, the parent/guardian will need to verify the student resides within the ETHS District 202 boundaries and must provide new proof of residence to the Registrar’s Office in Room S127.

    ETHS additionally requires proof of residency for all rising juniors. If, at any time, a student’s residence is in question, ETHS will investigate. The District may ask for additional documents for verification. If a student is not living within the ETHS District 202 boundaries full-time, or if a student’s living arrangements do not agree with statements provided by a parent or legal guardian, the student will be disenrolled from school, and their parent or guardian will have to pay tuition for the time their child attended ETHS. For more information about residency requirements, contact the Residency Officer at (847) 424-7182.

    Truancy Services

    The Truancy Officer fulfills the responsibilities assigned by the State of Illinois to address chronic absenteeism and truancy. Students who attend ETHS are required by state law to attend school each day school is in session until age 17, except as provided in the law. If a student is absent nine (9) or more days in six (6) or more classes, the student may be referred to the Cook County Truancy Office. Parents/guardians are responsible for their student’s attendance at school, and for notifying the school when their student will be absent for a valid reason. Additional truancy information is provided in the Attendance section of The Pilot handbook. If you have questions about truancy, contact the Truancy Office at (847) 424-7183.
