Bradley School District Board Policy requires you to prove residency before enrolling your child in the district. During Online Registration, you do not have to show residency if you still reside in the same residence for the 2020-2021 school year.
If you are on an affidavit (living with another person, family, etc.) from the 2019-2020 school year, or have changed addresses but still live in the Bradley School District during the year, you will need to contact the Registration Hotline at 815-936-5301 or Registration@BradleySchools.com to set up an appointment to come in and prove residency to your school building administrator before your online registration can be processed. If you are on an affidavit, the owner of the home must be present and sign a district affidavit. This process must happen every year. Please contact the owner in advance so they can attend the meeting with you. Unique situations will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
