Oh and btw, they have full authority to ask you to enter your home to verify residency of the child.

I've read a lot of speculation regarding Lostvikings post. This person is not obligated to tell us the "whole story". There is nothing more we need to know. The fact remains, this local school district is demanding entry to check his refrigerator and closets. What more do we need to hear? If the police show up with a valid search warrant that is one matter, but for school officials, who's only charge is to educate our children, demand entry? I don't think so!! you stand your ground Lostviking. That is your domain, your sanctuary, protect it at all cost.. Forget about football, something much bigger than that is at stake..

Read very carefully the registration form/s you signed as a parent. This/these registration forms, presumably with your signature on them, function as a contract. If, in that contract/registration form, you authorized an investigation of residency that includes allowing a school representative into your home, then you have signed a contract waiving any rights you would have to the contrary. It is always prudent to know what you are signing, and most prudent to understand how important your signature is and what that means in terms of contract law.

The link above is just one of many examples of a district that REQUIRES parents to sign an affidavit of residency for a childs resident status...IF the district deems necessary, by signing this affidavit, you ARE CONSENTING to a home visit, investigation of residency, and are consenting to a punishable offense by law if found guilty of residency fraud.
