The Ball-Chatham School District is asking parents and guardians who plan to re-enroll their children for the 2016-17 school year to verify residency. Please note that residency must be verified before students can be registered (either online beginning July 18 through August 5) or through walk-in registration (11 a.m. to 6 p.m., August 4, at each school). Notification of schedules and/or teachers will not be made available until residency is confirmed and registration is complete.
For those who have yet to do so, you have the following options:
Mail in copies of the required residency items, (see list attached) from Category 1 and Category 2, and include the residency form (attached) to the District Office – 201 W. Mulberry, Chatham, IL 62629.
Residency documents will be reviewed and if further information is needed, parents/
guardians will be notified by the District Office. The District will NOT be in contact if all documents are received, and residency IS confirmed.
For questions, please call the District Office at 483-2416, ext. 0. Thank you, and we appreciate your cooperation on this request!
