Non-resident students are those where parents or guardians do not reside in the school district. Non-resident students are those who have not taken residency in the school district at the time of registration or are students living with a relative, friend, or guardian who is a resident of the school district and has accepted formal guardianship of the student. A non-resident student is also a school age student residing within a residential rehabilitative group home within the district, a residential Approved Private School within the District, or a school age student placed in a DPW Day Treatment Facility.
Non-resident students shall be registered at the Pupil Services Office. The Board reserves the right to verify the residency of any student and to require a sworn statement of residential support for the student who resides with a person other than his/her parent, guardian, custodian, or CEO of group home/ Residential APS/ DPW Day Treatment Facility.
In cases of multiple occupancy, a Multiple Occupancy Affidavit
with a notarized seal must be completed by the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of the child and the Neshaminy School District property owner, and submitted to Pupil Services in order to complete registration. Parents who falsify information on the Multiple Occupancy Affidavit who fail to meet notification requirements may be held liable by the district for reimbursement of tuition and costs.
The school district shall accept pupils from other areas who make their full-time home in the Neshaminy School District without his/her parent(s)/ legal guardian(s). Before a child is accepted, the person(s) with whom such a child is residing shall file with Pupil Services a sworn statement, 1302 Affidavit of Support
, that they are residents of the district, verification that they are supporting the child gratis, that they will assume all personal obligations and responsibilities for the academic achievement and good standing of the child, and that they intend to so keep and support the child continuously and not merely through the school term. The resident must also show cause why the student cannot live with his parents or guardian.
