Proof of Residency Forms

Proof of Residency Forms

The Beaumont Independent School District requires that parents/legal guardians provide proof of residency to register their student(s) in school.


Returning Students

Students who were enrolled in a Beaumont ISD school on the last day of the 2015-2016 school year, shall provide residency information by completing the annual enrollment form. If the address on the enrollment form differs from the address in the district’s database, the parent/legal guardian will be required to submit a Change of Address Form along with two required forms of residency documentation as outlined on the enrollment checklist.

New Students

Students who are brand new to the district or students who previously attended a BISD school, but were not enrolled on the last day of the 2015-2016 school year, must present two required proofs of residency as outlined on the enrollment checklist.

Sharing a Residence with Family/Friends

Parents/legal guardians and their students who are living long-term with another BISD family through a mutual, cooperative agreement, (such as roommates/families sharing living expenses; a domestic partnership or relationship, an adult child who still resides in the home with parents, etc.,) but do not currently have residency documents in their name, may seek provisional enrollment for their student using a Shared Residency Affidavit. Both the parent/legal guardian and homeowner/renter must complete the affidavit and sign in the presence of a notary public. The notarized affidavit along with all required documents must be presented to the Student Services Department for review. Upon validation by the Student Services Department, this affidavit and provisional clearance may be presented to the campus and will allow a 30 day enrollment into the district while the parent/guardian secures required residency documentation.


Note: The use of this affidavit does not necessarily guarantee enrollment into a particular campus within a particular school attendance zone. The District reserves the right to assign the campus the student will attend until residency is fully established.

Loss of Housing

If you are living in a motel/hotel, shelter, car, abandoned building, in the park, or staying with another family due to an urgent need for temporary shelter as a result loss of permanent housing (i.e. eviction, foreclosure, fire, flood, violence, natural disaster, devastating hardship, etc.,) your children may still be eligible to enroll in school.
