Before any student can register to attend, legal residency within the school district’s boundaries must be proven.  Families whose primary residence is outside of the boundaries are NOT eligible to attend Petal Schools.  Therefore, proof of residency is required for all students.  To establish residence, two documents must be presented.  One document from Column A and one document from Column B must be presented at the time of registration.  These are the only documents that will be accepted to establish residency and enroll students in the Petal School District.

Column A:

  • Mortgage Document – current receipt showing physical address
  • Lease – with effective dates
  • Deed

 Column B:

ONLY utility bills dated JUNE 18, 2016, and after will be accepted for verification.

  • Electric bill w/name and address (within 30 days)
  • Gas bill w/name and address (within 30 days)
  • Water bill w/name and address (within 30 days)
