on the border of school districts....

Is there a way to get you kid to go to the other (better) school district if you are on the "border" of 2 districts?

There were people that lived 100 ft from our school and went to a different school in Park Ridge.

It was considered the "border" and I was under the impression that being on the border allowed you to enter either school.

NESBA - Seems to be missing, can someone direct me where to find it?

I can vouch for that

I know people have driven their kids to the other school. Meaning, since they were out of a specific district, bus service was unavailable.

No.

Suburbs love to find kids crossing the border to their schools then they get to charge the family for services.

To do it legally someone in the district needs to become guardian of your kid.

Saw you are in Schiller Park are you thinking Rosemont?

This is an area I am familiar with and they do check on residency.

No, I was looking for a new place and it is right on the border. Schiller park schools are getting better though, but looks like rosemont is better yet.

Maybe I can "rent" a room from somebody in the district for like $100 a month... (it's in the boonies, avg house is less than $200k)

out in the burbs, you can petition to go to the other school. but at my school, there was already too many kids going there so they denied any apps. usually you don't have a choice. on the border just means on edge of the line, not you are on both sides and can pick where you want to go.

Join the school board of the district you prefer and redraw the boundary lines as you desire. It happens in U46 every year, but for the better schools within the district.

I think you can get info from the district about doing this. It's not unheard of.

Parents on a self-indulgent mission on a school board tend to be the worst thing that can happen to a district.

Welcome to over half of the state's school boards. The children are the least of the boardmembers' concerns. I've sat through some of these meetings. Grown adults acting like preschoolers and getting vicious toward each other choosing sides and telling lies to the media to stir shiz up.

My wife is a HS Department Chair and has to deal with the district board often. Power struggles and ego trips abound. Logic is thrown out before the meetings start. You think Washington politics are dirty?

basically you want a cheaper house near to an area that has had their home values driven up by the great schools. If I was on the school board I'd fight people doing this tooth and nail.

Here's what I'm talking about:

The question was about crossing boundaries from one district to another. THAT is not a function of the local school board. That is at the State Level. Joining the local board to try to 'fix' that results in a person there who has no other reason to be there other than a misplaced selfish desire. Characteristic: Acts before thinking or understanding the problem.

I'm not saying there are not places like this with members like that already. They are all over the place. Adding to it doesn't help the problem get any less. Again, this is the start of the worst things to happen to a board. Add into the mix the spitefulness and anger from not getting their way and whoah boy; the whole thing turns to complete shit.

Rosemont checks and takes it very seriously.

sort of, but not really. its that 25 acres with ranch for under $400k... i just can't find anything like that in the district. strangely, the property is in the village that the desired district is named after???

I guess i could just buy a crappy house in district and pretend i live there (they are cheap, and would probably be cheaper than paying k-8 tuition for 4 kids)

I've been fighting with 2 school districts for the past few months about this as well... I live on the border and bought the house being told I was in one school district, but the other school district told me I was in their district after I moved in... since I haven't lived here very long, my taxes haven't been changed to my name yet so it took forever to verify which district... anyways... you can't just pick any district you want... you need to go to the school that you pay taxes to and from what I was told, you can't do anything to change districts.

If you are thinking about buying a 2nd house/ renting a 2nd house in the district that you want just so you can use the address, just remember that you won't be able to utilize the school buses and you will have to drive your kids every day. Also, if you are ever caught doing this, you can be in some serious trouble.

Sometimes your knight in shining armor is just a retard wrapped in tin foil.
