Residency Verification/Health Requirements
To show residency within the District, the person with whom the student lives in the District and who claims custody of the student must present documents as described below. If the person enrolling the student claims the student is homeless or attending school in the student’s former district upon the determination of the Department of Children and Family Services, only the appropriate items in Category Three must be presented.

Our Preschool / Early Childhood Education program is a blended classroom for 3-5 year-old students with and without disabilities. Students are co-taught by certified early childhood teachers who also hold certification in special education. An integrated service approach is utilized with a speech language pathologist, occupational therapist, physical therapist, social worker, certified school psychologist, and an English Language Learner teacher, all collaborating to meet students’ diverse learning needs. The program is available to any family in the D181 community and is held at Oak School (950 S. Oak Street, Hinsdale).
