Residency Requirements

Welcome to the Mequon-Thiensville School District!

Our school district serves the students and parents of the communities of Mequon and Thiensville. Children who are residents of Mequon or Thiensville are entitled to attend the Mequon-Thiensville schools. In order for us to do the best job possible, it is important that we verify student residency. This page explains how you can establish, for our records, that your child is a resident of the City of Mequon or Village of Thiensville. Proof of residency will be required prior to registration in our district.

If you are a resident of Mequon or Thiensville and your child lives with you, the following documents can be used to establish your child’s residency.
1. If you rent, a copy of your rental agreement.
2. If you own or are buying a home, a copy of your real estate tax bill; if you recently purchased a home in Mequon or Thiensville, a copy of the closing statement.

If you cannot furnish any of these documents because you live with a resident of Mequon or Thiensville, other documents to establish your child’s residence will be required.

If your child lives in Mequon or Thiensville, but you do not, your child is probably not a resident and will not be allowed to go to the Mequon-Thiensville schools unless he/she meets certain requirements. The presumption is that a child’s residence is the same as that of the child’s parents. Your child will not be admitted to our schools until school officials are satisfied that your child is a resident of Mequon or Thiensville. We will ask both you and the person that your child lives with to sign a form certifying, under the penalty of perjury, that your child is a resident of Mequon or Thiensville for all purposes and not merely for the purpose of attending our schools.

If Mequon-Thiensville school officials have any questions about the documents or evidence you submit, they may ask for additional information. The average cost of educating a student in our schools is more than $12,000 per year. It is our obligation to ensure that Mequon and Thiensville tax dollars are supporting the education of our residents. If your child attends Mequon-Thiensville schools but is not a resident, you will be responsible for reimbursing our district.

If you have any questions about this required information, our processes or the intent of this information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
