Students Registering FOR THE FIRST TIME in District 86:

Board Policy / Residency Requirements: The right to attend a Hinsdale Township High School is extended to residents who live within the District’s boundaries. Students who move into the school district to live with relatives or friends for the purpose of attending a Hinsdale High School are not considered legal residents in the district and, therefore, cannot be admitted to the school. Pursuant to Hinsdale Township High School District 86 Board of Education Policy 7:50 and 7:60, every family must provide evidence of residency before enrollment.

NOTE:  It is contrary to the policy of the Board of Education to admit students who do not legally reside with their parents or legal guardians within the District boundaries. The information you provide will be used by school officials to help establish the eligibility of each applicant for admission. Falsification of information on this form or otherwise submitted to the District may result in your child being excluded from school, and may expose you to monetary liability under Illinois law for payment of tuition for such time as your child was illegally enrolled in the District. For the 2015-2016 school year, annual tuition for District 86 is $16,530 and accrues on a daily basis in the amount of $91.83. Further, any person who knowingly enrolls or attempts to enroll a non-resident student in the District or presents to the District any false information regarding the residency of a student commits a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a $500.00 fine and up to 30 days in jail.
