In order to attend a St. Helena Unified School, a student must reside within established attendance boundaries. The residence of a minor child is presumed to be the legal, primary residence of the parent(s) or guardians who have physical custody of the child.
“Residence” is the primary place where a person lives permanently, not temporarily, and is the place that is the center of his or her domestic, social, and civic life. Because residency can change for students and their families during the course of the academic year, SHUSD may continue to verify residency after the beginning of the school year. SHUSD may also act upon anonymous tips it receives to conduct a residency verification investigation.
