There are situations when a student and her/his parents reside with a party who lives within the Gilroy Unified School District’s boundaries. For example, when a family resides on a ranch or farm that has a dwelling or when a family rents a room within a home. In these circumstances, the owner of the property must complete the document Affidavit of Residence Eng/ Span.

There are also situations when only the student resides with a party (not the student’s parents) who lives within the Gilroy Unified School District’s boundaries. Caregiver’s and/ or Family Affidavit  Eng/ Span

Both of the above affidavits require that the residence be on a full-time basis. A full-time basis means seven days and seven nights per week. The parent and legal guardians will have to sign papers, under penalty of perjury, indicating the living arrangements.

If, at any time, there is a question raised about a student’s residence, the District will undertake an investigation of the student’s actual residence. If it is found that the situation is not as stated by the parents or legal guardian, the student will be excluded from attending the school and be assigned to his/her actual Attendance Area School OR referred to district of residence to apply for an INTERDISTRICT request if the residence is not within the Gilroy Unified School District Boundary
