Explanation of Policies and Forms - Nonresident Students

The Fairview School District does not accept nonresident students from other school districts.

The Pennsylvania school code provides for free school privileges in the school district of residence.  Residency is established and maintained where a student lives, sleeps and spends a majority of their time.  When a student is residing at a residence that is not owned or rented by the parent / guardian, or where the parent / guardian has relinquished custodial rights, both the resident and parent / guardian must complete and sign, in the presence of a notary, the appropriate district forms.  These forms must be provided to the Principal or Assistant Principal of the school building where the student will attend.

The Board reserves the right to verify the claims of residency, dependency and guardianship of any student and to require a sworn statement of residential support for the student who resides with a person other than his/her parent/guardian/custodian.  If a nonresident student’s claim is invalid or if information contained in the sworn statement of residential support is found to be false, the student shall be removed from school attendance in accordance with Board policy.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, a person who knowingly provides false information in the sworn statement for the purpose of enrolling a child in a school district for which the child is not eligible commits a summary offense and shall, upon conviction for such violation, be sentenced to pay a fine of no more than three hundred dollars ($300) for the benefit of the school district in which the person resides or to perform up to two hundred forty (240) hours of community service, or both.  In addition, the person shall pay all court costs and shall be liable to the school district for an amount equal to the cost of tuition calculated in accordance with section 2561 during the period of enrollment.

 

A parent / guardian has relinquished guardianship of a student on a permanent basis

When a parent / guardian has relinquished guardianship of a student to a resident of the Fairview School District, both the parent / guardian and resident must complete district forms, and be present with a notary when the forms are signed.
