Required Residency Documents

Below are the documents that must be provided by families that are registered as renters, live with Oak Park residents, or are “in lieu of lease” due to a family trust or inheritance.

If you pay utility bills online, please download and save a screenshot of the bill with your name, the address and current date visibly present, and then upload the document to your online registration form. If you plan to provide your residency documents at a later date, please scan and email them to [email protected] with your student's name as the subject head, or bring them to one of the district's designated "Upload Days" for assistance. Walk-ins will not be accepted outside of those set dates.
