Before ANY student will be assigned to a class or given a schedule for the 2014-2015 school year, the student’s parent or legal guardian MUST verify residency in the Poplarville School District.  Residency may be established in the following manner:

The parent or legal guardian must provide the school district with at least two (2) of the items numbered 1-6 below as verification of their address, except that any document with a post office box as an address will NOT be accepted. The two proofs must verify the EXACT same address as student’s primary residence and be current.

  1. Filed Homestead Exemption Application form for the student’s primary residence

  2. Mortgage Document or property deed for the student’s primary residence (A bill is NOT an acceptable document.  An acceptable document will contain the land description of the student’s primary residence.)

  3. Notarized Apartment or home lease where the student resides

  4. Utility Bills (Water, Electricity, or Gas – NO PHONE BILLS) Bills Must be Dated Within One Month of Verification of Residence. A physical service address must be visible. NO PO Box will be accepted.
