Proof of Residency Requirements for a Child Who Is a Dependent and Not Your Own Child

According to § 1302 of the Pennsylvania School Code of 1949, any child who meets the minimum requirements of this statute is entitled to attend public school in the resident district of the adult who is supporting him or her gratis.  An adult residing in the school district is required to file either appropriate legal documentation to show dependency or guardianship (or a sworn statement that the adult is a resident of the school district, that he or she is supporting the child gratis,) will assume all personal obligations for the child relative to school requirements, and intends to keep and support the child continuously and not merely through the school term.  The school district may, pursuant to the attached guidelines, require other reasonable information to be submitted by the resident to substantiate the sworn statement.  Upon such filing, the school entity must enroll the child in question.

  • Proof that signer is a resident of the Marion Center Area School District
  • Proof that signer is supporting the child gratis
  • Proof that signer will assume all personal obligations for the child relative to school requirements and intends to so keep and support the child continuously and not merely through the school term
