The school district has every right to verify that a student lives within its boundaries. If your son is in fact a superstar you could possibly be
jeopardizing his ability to be noticed by a college team. Do you have any idea how many students typically register at a school they are not supposed
to attend? About 3% on average. I don't know what your school's spending per pupil is, or its population, but let's say the per pupil spending
was $15,000, lets also assume that 3% of the students didn't belong there. That is 45 students. That totals $675,000 of taxpayer money that is
going towards children that don't reside in the district.
School districts are getting tough on residency because of this. I don't know what state you live in, but I would check that out as well. If you
have lied and registered your son in a school where he doesn't belong, you are responsible for the tuition, (the per pupil spending) as well as a
fine and possibly jail time.
