Lying about school district

Our city has three elementary schools. One school is pretty bad; one is really good; and of course one is in between.

We are in the district for the in between school. My parents (who live within walking distance) are in the district for the "really good" school.

Naturally I want my DS to go to the best school so in contemplating using my parents address to register him for Pre K.

I know it is lying and wrong, but I have other reasons as well.

There is a good chance that we may be living there within the next year.

My parents have agreed that once my grandparents are unable to live alone, they will move down there to take care of my grandparents and their 13 year old daughter. (Yes my elderly grandparents are raising a 13 year old it is a long story).

Anyways DH and I will then move into my parents house and take over their house payment and eventually buy it. This would help both of us out. My parents owe more on their house than it is worth (like most people in America) and DH and I would have a bigger nicer house.

Well the thing is, my grandmother just got news that her cancer has taken a turn for the worse. She if fixing to start some pretty heavy chemo.

My mom already practically lives down there as it is. I think the only thing that has stopped them from moving down there thus far is my dads night job. However my dad is retiring from that job at the end of this month.

I honestly see my parents moving down there by the end of the summer.

Which puts us living at their house come school.

However Pre-K registration is now. I could sign him up for our school and then transfer, but there most likely won't be a spot open at the other school come fall.

So what should I do?

(Granted DH and I discussed it and we already know what we are going to do)

My SIL used her moms address so her son could go to a better school. The one where she lives is really bad. Someone ratted her out though and so now she said she has to pay money so her son can can to another school not in her district.

I don't see a problem with it.

I didn't read your other reasons. My advice is put your son first. Many will tell me I'm wrong, but its every man for themselves in the real world. You want your kid to have the best? You do what you have to do.

I'd be willing to bet that they would just let you register her at the school she will eventually be attending given the circumstances.

I'm so glad that there is no concern about school zones where I live :)

I'm doing that for my daughter for this upcoming school year. The school we are currently districted for is literally the worst one in our district.

Yea I'd go ahead and register with your parent's address. Just tell them you already live there though, I know here if you don't live in the district they won't take you at all, they'd say when you do live in the district then you can register here.

My kids go to a school not in our district. We also use my parents address because the school is better. I say do it.

I would use your parents address. I was lucky enough to  not have to resort to that in my old town. We lived in a HORRIBLE school district, but I got to place my dd elsewhere due to her disability.  Truthfully, if I were you, I would feel NO guilt in putting down your parent's address
