Baltimore County families must verify residency
Once again, Baltimore County is requiring parents of all rising sixth- and ninth-graders to provide proof of residency. Yes, the county is making every family do this even if the family has lived in the same house for the past 15 years and their children have spent the past nine years in the county schools.
Seems like a lot of paperwork, but the county has said many families are trying to sneak into schools in areas they don't live in.
Here's what proof the county wants: a photo identification, a lease or deed and three pieces of mail sent to the home address within the last 60 days. The documents need to be provided by August 27 or the student will be withdrawn from the school system.
I am wondering if parents or administrators are finding this a burden or a necessity?
