Residency Verification

  • Wolf Creek Elementary will request proof of residence upon enrollment of all incoming scholars. All documents must be current and in the enrolling parent's name. Wolf Creek will only accept the documents listed on the Fulton County Schools  Approved Residency List. Fulton County Schools require one current document from both, the Utility List and the Residency List (see lists in boxes below). When the approved documents cannot be supplied by the enrolling parent/guardian, residency verification will be submitted to the district's residence verification team and/or the school's social worker and your enrollment start date may be delayed.  

    Beginning of the Year Process for Residency Verification:

    ALL New Enrollment - upon enrollment, at least one proof of residence will need to be approved before starting school. 
    Kindergarten  - upon enrollment, at least one proof of residence will need to be approved before starting school.
    2nd Grade - upon returning to school, two proofs of residence will need to be approved before starting school. All documents submitted must be current within the 1st day of school's start date. 

    During the Year Process for Residency Verification:

    It is the parent/guardians' responsibility to immediately report an address change. Withdrawal notices will be sent to the home address on file with a 10-day deadline from the date of the letter if there are any concerns with residency. To keep from any interruptions in enrollment, it is important to update households as needed and to provide residency verification when prompted. If the school becomes concerned that a student may have changed residences and no longer lives in the school’s attendance zone, the school will conduct its own due diligence, including:

      • Reviewing the student’s educational record, tardies, attendance, and/or bus riding records;
      • Contacting the student’s parent or legal guardian for more information; and/or
      • Consulting with the school’s social worker.

    * If residence verification is requested from Wolf Creek Elementary during the school year, submission of documents must be in person with either the data clerk or school's social worker.
