|Affidvit of residency|
Parents/guardians of all students must submit a notarized Affidavit of Residence form certifying that the family resides in Fulton County. This applies to both current and new students and will be required annually.
The purpose of the Affidavit is to make sure that only students who reside in Fulton County attend Fulton County schools. Because of Fulton’s reputation as one of the best school systems in Georgia, some families living outside of Fulton attendance zones have found creative ways to enroll their children in Fulton schools. These families take advantage of Fulton’s outstanding programs and services, yet do not pay the taxes used to fund schools. The notarized Affidavit legally certifies that all children reside in their correct school attendance zone, or have an approved transfer.
Parents are encouraged to have the Affidavit notarized and submitted to the school during the first week of classes. However, a lenience period of up to 30 calendar days is granted before the system begins to investigate any families failing to submit their forms.
Notaries often can be found at banks, law offices, copy centers, insurance companies, courts, and in many other government buildings. Each Fulton County school also has at least one notary on staff.
Note: The documents needed for verification DO NOT need to be attached to the Affidavit form and submitted to the school. Only the Affidavit form itself, once notarized, should be submitted.
