I lived with a friend briefly at the begining of the school year. So my son goes to the school from her address. Once we moved I did not file a change of address with the post office so that they wouldn't know and make him move schools. He has had school probs in the past. He is happy, I don't want to move him.
Does anyone know if I get a PO box at the post office there and have mail forwarded to it will the school investigate that?

I used to work in schools. All I can say is that if they catch you then legitimately you could be told your child is not able to attend the school. The way the school would find out if a child is not in the correct district is if the social worker had to visit the home. Occasionally they would make home visits and then find out the child was not living there. The schools I was at did not do P.O. Boxes. They needed the actual physical address. This wasn't just to make sure every child really lived in the district. It was also for emergencies should they have to send law enforcement out to your home to investigate abuse/neglect, send authorities to your home to come get you because your child had an emergency, or because you had an emergency and your child was not picked up. We had that happen. Car accidents happen to parents. A true address is just safety.

The school where I teach requires a physical address in case the child needs to be brought home. So a PO only wouldn't work. Are you sure you can't get a waiver? Check into it.

Don't you need to provide proof of address EVERY school year? We require parents to provide UPDATED proof of address before each school year starts. If you get caught, your son will be out.
