Residency Verification

The annual Long Beach Public Schools Residency Verification for current fifth-grade and eighth-grade students collects documentation that will assist in assembling students’ records for middle/high school, and to verify that all students who enter Long Beach Middle School and Long Beach High School are legal residents of the district and entitled to attend.

Parents/legal guardians of all current fifth-graders and eighth-graders are sent a mailing in early January that explains the documentation required and the method for submission. Additional information may be obtained by calling the Registrar, or by clicking the information link below. Verification must be completed before a current fifth-grade student will be admitted to middle school and before a current eighth-grade student will be admitted to high school.

The Board of Education considers valid student residency to be an important component in confronting the district’s fiscal challenges. Residency Verification is one tool to ensure that every child who is educated in the district’s schools is legally entitled to that education.
