Residency Reverification

BCPS policy requires that all students transitioning from Grade 5 to Grade 6 and Grade 8 to Grade 9 verify residency prior to the start of the school year. Students enrolled as homeless, shared domicile, or students in state-supervised care verify residency annually and are exempt from this process.

During the last week of April, parents and guardians of ALL current 8th grade students will receive a letter in the mail with instructions regarding the documentation required to complete the verification process.

Please note that failure to submit your residency documents may result in your 8th grader not being able to participate in end of year activities such as Field Day and the 8th Grade Dance (EGG). Your child will also be withdrawn from BCPS.

We are not accepting partial documentation submissions. All 5 of your residency documents must be submitted at one time.

All documents need to be turned into Mrs. Watson, Counseling & Records Secretary. (443) 809-7630 [email protected]

If you do not have a printer or copier, please feel free to come to the school. We can make copies of your documents for you.

These are the documents required to complete transition year residency verification:

1) If you own your home, we need a copy of your signed deed, title, mortgage coupon book or real estate tax bill. If you rent, we need a copy of your lease. If your lease is expired, you must also include your renewal letter or address verification letter from your leasing company.

2) Three (3) pieces of business mail or documentation (print out of online bill or statement). This documentation must be dated within the past sixty (60) days. All documents must reflect the same name and address.

3) Parent/Guardian Photo Identification (passport, driver's license, work ID).
