Affidavit of Residency
In order to ensure that Keller ISD resources are being utilized for students who reside in a Keller ISD attendance zone, all students enrolling with an Affidavit of Residency are required to provide proof of residency annually, as established in the Keller ISD residency verification process.
All applications for enrollment in Keller ISD public schools under TEC §25.001 must meet the residency requirements. Keller ISD shall conduct an investigation to verify the residency of the student/family. In the event that Keller ISD determines documentation was falsified and the student was not a resident of Keller ISD, the student enrollment will be denied.
Texas Education Code §25.001(b) (2-9), identifies other circumstances under which a student may be enrolled. A student enrolled under the TEC §25.001(b) (2-9) provisions will require additional forms to be completed, such as, but not limited to, Temporary Residence, Substantial Care Affidavit, or Power of Attorney. Any type of special circumstance may be discussed with the Keller ISD Student Services Department or designee.
A NOTARIZED AFFIDAVIT OF RESIDENCY MUST INCLUDE ONE DOCUMENT FROM EACH OF THE FOLLOWING TWO CATEGORIES:
FALSIFYING INFORMATION CAN RESULT IN PUNISHMENT, FINES, AND TUITION EXPENSES
Any person who knowingly falsifies information on a form required for enrollment of a student in a school district commits a crime under Texas Penal Code Sec. 37.10. It is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500. It is a third-degree felony if it is done with intent to defraud or harm another, punishable by a prison sentence of 2-10 years, plus a fine up to $10,000. A person who falsifies enrollment information is also liable to the district for the maximum tuition fee the district may charge under Texas Education Code Sec. 25.03.
