Please refer to the Proof of Residency Check Sheet – Returning Students form below for information regarding what documents will be required to prove residency in North Chicago School District 187. Documentation of your Mortgage or a complete current signed and dated lease, along with a photo ID are mandatory verification documents and you will not be able to complete verification without this documentation. Two other forms of proof of residency from the list are then required to support the mortgage or lease document.
Transfer Information – If you will not be returning to North Chicago School District, complete the End of the Year Request for Transfer Form and submit it to the main office at your student’s school. After submitting the End of the Year Request for Transfer, the secretary will prepare an Illinois State Transfer Form and attach any medical documents and final report card for the student. For High School Only: If you owe any fees, you must resolve the balance before you are issued an Official Transcript. When you complete the Transfer Process, you will need to complete the entire registration process should you plan to return to North Chicago School District.
Current Student Withdrawal Procedures – A student will be removed from the rolls when he/she transfers, the parent completes the Request for Withdrawal Form or is expelled. The student must be accompanied by his/her parent who must have a valid photo ID and report to the main office where the student attends school. The student must bring all property belonging to the school. This includes text books, library books, etc. For High School Only: The main office will then give the student a withdrawal card which the student then takes to individual teachers. At this time, the student turns his/her books into the teacher and the teacher signs the card. A student owing money should be prepared to pay balances at the time of withdrawal in order to have official records released.
The parent/guardian must come into the school and present proper identification to the secretary to verify that he/she is the parent/guardian. The secretary will date and sign the Request for Withdrawal Form, which will coincide with the date the student entered into the computer as the date the student actually withdrew from school. The secretary will release a copy of the student’s transcript, all medical records, and a copy of the form letter from the Illinois State Board of Education indicating the status of the student upon leaving the school.
A student can be withdrawn from school when another school informs us that the student is in attendance at their school. The school will be required to send us the proper forms filled out. If a student leaves without returning books or owing an outstanding obligation, every effort will be made to collect the outstanding obligation before records are sent out.
